This was visibly located on the main road in Kayabwe and is a considerable tourist attraction. It was nicely done and the local who showed us the difference in the water flushing between north and south of the equator did it really well.

I suppose if you feel you have to do it...then you have to do it! The restaurant opposite was fine. I got a great wax resist cloth from them. I actually believed the trick about the water which cost me $10!
