Some fun facts about Zanzibar:
- By this specific time a couple of workers of the English Embassy asked to UK to leave Zanzibar and live in London. The Bulsara's couple left Zanzibar behind carrying a little baby in their arms. This young boy would be the vocal leader in one of the most important rock bands in the England History. The Queen. I'm talking about the Frederick Bulsara, or as he has been known globaly, Freddy Mercury!
- This event in Zanzibar cast shadows on millions who were killed and suffered under the results of this siege. But, some silver lines is possible to be seen in those clouds, when anyone considered the existence of some people who were able to impact the world as a result of it.
