People from this Island are separated from the others living on the lakeside by a large mass of water. Therefore, they have their unique and interesting way of life so please don’t leave the Island without joining the village elders and tasting their sweet porridge served in a calabash( Agwata) as they tell you the story about the origin of Rusinga Island.
