Next we canoed around to 'The Aquarium', an outcrop of rock that was teeming with cichlid. Some of the local guys could put their hands in the water, loaded with bread and catch the little blighters in their hands. All I caught was water and soggy bread.
The weather looked like it was going to take a turn for the worse and Keith was desperate to get back to the mainland for more beers. I liked Keith, he was direct, straight to the point and didn't take any crap is a way only people from the north of England can do.
After a couple more beers at the bar we went back to Keith's place where he cooked up some of the local maize flour (called Nshima here) and beans.
I bought a couple of carved pipes from Duncan, one of Keith's African buddies.
