Were very satisfied with our accom in KIgali. The position in the city is perfect, and the hostel is clean and friendly. While it is rather expensive to stay here ($20 camping!!) it is an expensive city so the price seems right. Close to all amenities and knowledgeable about things to do in Kigali and Rwanda too.

After the service ended, while the women were getting preparing lunch, Marjolaine and I set off to visit two families in their homes. My time in country is so short during my visits to African countries that I rarely have time to visit most ...

... was also shocked at how far we live from our extended family.

The batches upon batches of goat brochettes were now ready. The tables and benches were prepared. See, the children and some adults sit on benches to eat these special meals since we haven't enough tables for everyone. First a plate is placed on a bench, then some food, then some more food, and then a little more food. All this is done before anyones is permitted to eat. Once the eating was allowed, I ...
