Kiwayu Island


An easily accessible island with only two villages. The bigger one has a school and is inhabited by about 400 people, the smaller one is situated about 90 minute-journey away and is inhabited by about 100 people. The children go to school through the bush. The natives live very modest lives but they take particular care of cleanliness. I had a very long and interesting conversation with one of my boat cox’s wives in the bigger village. We talked about different religions and politics. It was a unique experience for me to sit in a simple hut and talk to such an intelligent woman.
