The Road to Mfangano / by Steven Kitoto

Hello people, it has been a while since I was on here. Today, I would like to share with you some images of a place that we went to with OneTouch Live some months back, Mfangano Island. Many people upon saying Mfangano have asked me, "where is that?" Mfangano is an island nestled well in the Lake Victoria that is accessible by ferry from Mbita (which is a town just past Homa-Bay).

Being my first time down there, I never quite knew what to expect on arrival seeing as this was my first time down that route. One thing is a for sure this is a very beautiful island and is said that the best fish comes from these parts.

Of course in usual OneTouch patterns road trips never cease to have drama, and this time around it was some car trouble that saw some of our members stay in Homa Bay to fix the car, because past there no spare parts were available for the vehicle. This was an unfortunate turn of events but as we say in OneTouch we ADAPT!

Mfangano life is quite chilled and relaxed, not much pressure for life and most activity you find is in the morning by the beaches when the fishermen come in with their early catch. Such a sight to be behold is the sunrise was well ...

Mornings by the beach is a flurry of activity from fishermen selling their fish to kids taking a bath and ladies doing the dishes.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.

Part of the journey there we got to meet one of the islands oldest boat makers ... he has since then retired into the hills of the island but is making his last masterpiece there.
