However during your stay your host Ali will be with you every day. He arrives in the morning 8’ish and departs in the evening. He will help with the following;

He loves cooking but is still an apprentice, he can cook most seafood which he can help you purchase from the fishermen on the beach. Fish goes for 5,000-8,000 tsh per kg, Octopus 5,000-7,000 tsh per kg. Lobster about 15,000-20,000 tsh per kg. The fisherman usually won't have change so its best to have small cash available.

Ali can bring ice every day to keep your food and drinks cool in the cooler for 2,000/-
