Bagamoyo is a centre for dhow sailboat building on Tanzanian coast. A quiet place with a few German colonial buildings  still standing. During most of history, Bagamoyo has been  far important than Dar, But in  the last century it has become a set of decaying ruins.  The town was originally the mainland terminus for the slave trade routes. In Swahili language, , Bagamoyo  means ‘lay down your heart’ it was here that those slaves who survived the three to six months walk from the interior , usually carrying ivory , eventually gave up all hope of freedom and returning  to their people.
