    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.

A chicken picks its way under and around our chairs while we chat. In the distance we can hear men rolling boulders off the surrounding hills and breaking them to form smaller rocks for the foundations of their homes.

    ... from Lord of the Rings were having a boulder fight and the city is built on the smashed pieces, only some of the remnants can be several stories high and perched precariously atop one another. It would be more than a little disconcerting to live in one of the mud huts built near the base of these perilous looking rock formations.

    ... want to call them toilets. They are actually a cement hole in the ground with very little room to move. We saw no toilet paper and the stench was something no human being should ever have to smell. As a group we had the thought of trying to help these girls out by getting donations of money to see if we can get them some real rest rooms. We will get thoughts together and discuss when we get back to the states.

    ... the sun is scorching in the midday; fresh fruit and vegetables are delicious, but a corner grocery store within a fifteen minute drive would sure be nice; the slow pace of life is relaxing, but a desire on the part of the Tanzanians to attain measurable goals in a given timeframe would be welcome as well; solitude is a wonderful spiritual discipline, but loneliness is a haunting reality when friends are so few and the time between visitors is long; ...
