Lake Victoria

I also visited Lake Victoria one weekend with Ken and we took two of the school children as a special treat. The lake is so large that you cannot see the other side so it looks just like a sea. We soon attracted a band of local children who were obviously unused to having many white visitors, providing a new source of entertainment for them. Many of Ken’s extended family live in this area and again I recieved a very warm welcome from everyone. We spent a very entertaining evening dancing to traditional African music, the sight of a western lady willing to get up and dance alongside them caused much amusement!
 
I witnessed first hand the simplicity of a farming community who rely on the land or the Lake for all oftheir resources and sustenance. Many people have quite large pieces of land by European standards, but their lives are hard and entirely dependant on the benevolence of the forces of nature to provide food and produce to sell. Life is based entirely on the priorities for survival; food, shelter, water and clothing. There are no luxuries to be seen in these rural homes. Clothes are worn until they fall apart and furniture is passed down from generation to generation. No self-indulgent consumerism here! With no running water in rural areas, all water for drinking, cooking, washing and bathing has to be brought back from the river unless there is a bore hole on the land. It is a common sight to see ladies carrying heavy containers of water on their heads, and the river may be at least 15 minutes or more distant from their homes.
