Fairy lights

This is a place of stunning natural beauty, but one of the prettiest sights around at the moment is the lake at night. The fishing boats attract “sambaza”, small sardine-like fish, by suspending lamps just above the water. When the moon is full, there is no fishing, but at the time of the new moon the whole lake near us is lit up as if by fairy lights (over 100 that I could count last night). I wish a photo could do it justice, but in any case the internet link here is too slow to upload.
