Bathroom Art in Mwanza

We found a great little restaurant in Mwanza, called Kuleana Pizzeria, that is super popular with locals and travellers alike. The seating area is a partially covered courtyard just off the street, and the inner walls are painted with bright murals, giving it an atmosphere not dissimilar to a vibrant train station. They serve fresh juices and fruit salads, home made pizzas and freshly baked breads, among other things. What I liked most about it, though, were the awesome signs painted on the bathroom doors.

Jaws Corner

Possibly my favourite spot in Stone Town, Jaws Corner is a quiet meeting place where locals gather for a cup of arabica coffee or a game of dominoes. It is one of the few social spaces in Stone Town where you can hope to escape from other tourists and experience authentic Zanzibari chilling. A small square amidst the narrow, twisting alleyways that wind though the town, it is a place of convergence in more ways than one.
