        Friendly service, beautiful rooms and comfortable beds. Great restaurant, computer center, and amazing views of Lake Victoria. Loved it!

        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.

        Finally a lie in on this morning, but early starts had been programmed into us now so everyone was up and ready by 9. Around breakfast people spoke of the different sounds we heard during the night; and the guards informing us they were sounds from zerbra and hyena. Apparently there was a hyena kill not far from the camp that night! At 11am we were back on the truck again, it was still a long driving day, but this time we were surrounded by ...

        ... town.. Whoops! When our visit was over, Aires brought us back down to the parish and we said our goodbyes. Father Tiscornia invited us to eat lunch in their residence so we sat down to a delicious meal of soup, tuna fish sandwiches, salad and fruit. We ate good food and talked for a while and then it was time for us to go. Brother Beaudry was kind enough to drop us back in the center of Mwanza and we spent the afternoon at Capri point, the only "touristy" area in town. We ...

        After exchanging the customary greetings—a long and vital process in Tanzanian culture, we begin our conversation. We are determined to practice our Swahili and so we each introduce ourselves, struggling through a few broken phrases and sentences. We pull out our notecards and Swahili phrasebooks ...

        ... 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 ...
