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.

Among other things in the house were hidden rooms, a cabinet that ...

Greetings from King Faisal Hospital in Kigali, Rwanda!

I happen to be writing this entry at the hospital, so I better talk about health and medicine.

If you do not already know, over the past few years Rwanda has improved their public health system dramatically. Much of this improvement can be attributed to the implimentation of a health worker into every ...
