Zanzibar: The new site of the 2016 Rio Olympics!

Zanzibar City, Zanzibar – Since Rio de Janeiro is having such a plethora of problems including: a government meltdown, uncontrolled street violence, raw sewage in Guanabara Bay, an epic water shortage, and the zika virus, the International Olympic Committee has decided to change the site of the 2016 Rio Games to Zanzibar.

Zanzibar, which is known for its spices, has sometimes been called the Spice Islands. It is the location of the world’s shortest war, which lasted only 38 minutes against Britain.

Olympic athletes, when not competing in the 2016 Rio Games in Zanzibar, will be able to enjoy spending time at a number of wonderful clean beaches, do some scuba and snorkeling with turtles and dolphins, visit Cheetah’s Rock, see the Seaweed Center and the House Of Wonders, relax at the Butterfly Centre, eat at numerous restaurants in Stone Town, and finish off the day drinking tangawizi (ginger beer).

Because of local religious practices, both women and men should make an effort to cover their legs and arms, avoid public displays of affection, drink alcohol discreetly, and fast during Ramadan.

So, see you all in Zanzibar from August 5-21, the newly announced site for the 2016 Rio Olympics!

Live Your Passion in Zanzibar!
