Photographer's Note

On my way back from Zanzibar I noticed these colourful fishing boats in the port of Dar es Salaam. They differ somewhat from the traditional Dhow and Mokoro that they use. Still the boats are made from wood only. The practise is not used in the world for commercial vessels such as these anymore. The fishing trade is bustling in Dar es Salaam and they have a huge fish market. Thousands of people attend the market on a daily basis to get their supply of fresh fish. The photo was taken at sunset.
