From the natives' point of view, there are passages that flow as surely and simply as a prairie wind. I regret I cannot find a short excerpt to do justice to this. For me this is the Great Canadian Novel, the Canadian Huckleberry Finn.

          ... a bar. After the morning we had, ten hours squished in a dala dala from Bujumbura, we deserved it. Our new friend, Dennis the cab driver, took us to a sweet beach bar. Tables on the sand. Locals swimming in the lake. Nice sunset coming in. Beers. Perfection. I think I like Kigoma. We relaxed there for a bit, then needed some solid food to soak up the beers.

          Ottwa offered to take us to town as it was Sunday and he had some business there anyway. ...

          It is quite an experience to just spend the time while watching them doing their thing. There were numerous little ones. They are very cute and kept us busy watching them. Photographing the chimps is difficult as they are ...
