A busy day of rest in Giti

A travel blog entry by joelmeeker


This morning we were ready at 7:30 for the drive up to Giti. Ndeo was ready to go, and Patrick and James were waiting just outside Chez Lando. We picked them up and greeted them, they were both very happy and excited to see Marjolaine again. As we drove they ask about her health, about our daughters and many other things. The conversation was …

Heading for the hills

A travel blog entry by joelmeeker


This morning we were ready to go at 8:30 when Ndeo arrived for our day's activities. His little RAV4 is a compromise between cost and rough-road capability, a small, less-expensive 4WD vehicle. He speaks only a little English and less French, but we can communicate well enough for our purposes, especially since he receives instructions from Mr. …

Next stop: Rwanda

A travel blog entry by joelmeeker


This morning we had checked out and were ready to go at 11:00 when Mo´se arrived to pick up us. We made a brief stop at the post office to mail some postcards to family, then drove north of central Bujumbura to his new house, where he and his family have lived for the past three or four years. We were warmly welcomed into the home and offered …

Last day in Rwanda

A travel blog entry by joelmeeker


Today Mr. Mundeli was to come to the hotel about 10:30 to go over our accounting for the trip and for local needs. A call came to my room about that time but was cut off; I assumed that was him trying to let us know he'd be late. I worked all morning; at noon Daniel and I walked down to Sol e Luna for lunch. They had a nice buffet for a good price …

A Feast Day in rural Rwanda

A travel blog entry by joelmeeker


Today we started out a little after 7:30 as planned. The weather road was dry all the way up to Giti, so I took the opportunity to shoot some video. We arrived at 9:30 and found the van from Kayenzi as well as most of the members from Giti has not yet arrived.

However the "caterers" were already at work. To make this Holy Day a special …

    Older rooms need attention. Newer rooms are very good.

    The older, less expensive rooms are really showing their age. The are some backup odors in the bathrooms and the balcony doors don't all seal, allowing mosquitoes easy access. Plan on using the mosquito nets if you stay in these rooms. That said, the hotel is still a good value, meals are inexpensive and copious. The staff is very friendly and increasingly professional.

    This hotel offers good value for money on the road to the airport. Older rooms in the main building currently cost USD 60 a night, larger nicer rooms start at around USD 100. Wifi is free and works well. The breakfast buffet, included, is copious and good.

    Don't miss the barbecue pit, a crossroads for Africans and expats. Service is slow, but the food is good and good value.

    Very friendly and helpful staff.
