After lunch we picked up all our belongings and packed the bus quite strategically for the next 4 days when we would be out in the countryside in Butare and Huye and then on to Lake Kivu.

    Our guide told us that approximately 72,000 people were killed in the area, but 10,000 were killed in and around the church.

    Our next stop was the church at Ntarama. Again, this was a place were thousands of people gathered to find safety, as they had done in 1992. This time, there was no refuge. The church was blasted with grenades to get at the people inside, and then the people inside were killed, ruthlessly.
