Arriving in Mwanza slightly blurry eyed from 24-hours of travelling, we awoke the next day overexcited and disorientated. After collecting materials for the Summer Skills Workshop 2018 such as buckets of paint, stationery and timber, we boarded the ferry to Tanzania’s Ukerewe Island which sits in the middle of Lake Victoria. The ferry reminded me of Noah and the Ark – the sheer mass of belongings could have lasted the passengers a lifetime. People had brightly coloured fruit baskets, suitcases of all shapes and sizes, sofas, and crates of miscellaneous items which I couldn’t begin to name. Climbing onto the roof of the ferry, we towered over Lake Victoria, a vast expanse of water which didn’t have a beginning or end.
