Boy in Zanzibar

STORY

This picture is from the streets of Stonetown, Zanzibar, where were were touring with our guide. I got very few pictures of people, because you're constantly warned against taking pictures of people without their permission in Tanzania. I knew I shouldn't, but I just couldn't resist taking this shot as this little kid came through the door to his house, he was so picturesque. He was shortly followed by a man who was probably his grandfather, who gave me a glare but didn't do anything more about it. The rest of the photos below come from my collection among the colorfully dilapidated house of the city, which I loved for it's immense character and great style.
