    Well at least not the real one. We had a great time here. The pool was inviting as you cannot swim in the lake. There are beautiful gardens to relax in. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Katherine Hepburn Suite. Same price as the other rooms so we took this one and glad we did. It is a beautiful room on the boat with its own balcony. Very spacious and great views of the lake. I would stay there again.

We sit shoulder to shoulder on small chairs and wooden benches. There is a small stand in one corner of the room piled with household goods, books, papers, and stuff. A torn calendar from 2009 is on the wall, along with a couple dated political posters. The ...

    ... of the congregation to church. African time. A generator putts away outside the building and a power cord winds its way into the sound system. The building itself is of masonry construction. Decorative windows, also made of patterned masonry line the sides and allow the breeze to blow through and the music to waft out. A high metal roof keeps the congregation dry during the rainy season. Wooden pews sit ...

    Wednesday: We had a late breakfast of pancakes, fruit and boiled eggs. The fresh fruit is simply to die for…mango, sweet bananas, pineapple, and passion fruit. After breakfast we sat around the table and Dan led us in a long discussion about getting the most out of ...
