Did you know that Oman used to have a close relationship with Zanzibar? For anyone who needs a geography refresher, they are not anywhere near each other, but in the 18th century the island was under the control of the Sultan of Oman. Many Omanis have retained their African heritage and some still have family ties to the island. Just a fun fact that makes me want to visit this fascinating island off the coast of Tanzania even more.
