The Catch Of The Day
The village of Jambiani on the southeastern coast of Zanzibar is something akin to a classic hits compilation of your favorite band. Everything sounds good. Scenic seascapes, friendly locals, authentic cuisine. Check. Check. Check. There’s also something very interesting about the oh-so-stunning 7 km long beach. During low tide, the sea in Jambiani recedes almost 3 km exposing a wide swathe of beach. While the men head out to fish, the women (and children at times) wait for the tide to recede so that they can rummage in the tidal flats for clams, sea cucumber, moray eels and shellfish. With ever depleting fish stocks, there’s no guarantee that the men would return with a good catch. So every little bit helps.
