Photograph by Alice Schalek THE "CLEMENT HILL" A KNOCKDOWN STEAMER, DOCKS IN THE HARBOR OF ENTEBBE, SEAT OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IN UGANDA This vessel and others that ply Lake Victoria were built in England, shipped in parts to Uganda, and then set upand launched on thelake. Boats steaming across Victoria's often troubled waters sometimes mistake thick clouds of kungu flies for waterspouts or the smoke of a steamer, hull down. The insects form insuch dense masses that when a ship passes through them the skipper slows his vessel because of the "fly fog." Entebbe, a "garden city," isperched onapromontory overlooking the lake. Flowers and shrubs, tree-lined roads, and green lawns about numerous bungalows give it a parklike appearance.
