These images captured in the Stone Town area of Zanzibar, also known as Zanzibar City, depict daily life in this semi-autonomous region of Tanzania in East Africa. Zanzibar consists of an archipelago of islands in the Indian Ocean; the largest island being Unguja where these images were captured. Zanzibar joined with Tanganyika in 1964 to form the Republic of Tanzania, as it is known today. The average annual income in Zanzibar is $250 per year. The region suffers from excessive violence around election times due to the rivalry between the two largest political parties. As for economic viability, the region's main industries are spices, raffia palm, and tourism. The Stone Town area is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and signs of intelligent human existence date back over 20,000 years in this region. Zanzibar's population of 1.3 million is 99% Muslim and 1% Christian.
