     Around dusk on Saturday, we made it to our hotel in Uvira.  It was right on the lake.  Dinner was good at this hotel.  There was no hot water in the room---in fact, no water at all came out of the faucet labeled "HOT".  We had one towel between us, and showers were done by standing over a drain in the floor and using a hand-held sprayer to rinse off.  Toilet paper was deep pink and very coarse.  Power and water turned off about midnight.  We saw boats out on the lake very late at night, each one with a bright light.  The bright light is used to attract fish.

At dawn, the lake is a busy place---so many little fishing boats, fishermen casting and pulling in their nets, women on the beach washing clothes and then putting them in a basket on their heads to walk home.
