We travel further down south, heading straight towards Sambia. The Tanzanian soldiers that accompany us because of some recent attacks from the Congolese shore will soon leave the Liemba in Kasanga, a small village that is connected to the next bigger town in the Tanzanian South by a dusty road. However, these soldiers will not have to leave the way all the people above have to. In Kasanga there is something you could call a port, whilst most of the villages in the north just offer some watertaxis. The wooden boats approach the big Liemba and the people jump from one side to the other, throw their luggage not knowing whether it will land safely on the small trunks. Even children pass the hands of many Unknown on their journey from one boat to the other. Still, as chaotic it might look; nobody ever falls into the deep, deep waters.
