    Maybe it was because it was low season, but be did get a room with detached bathroom for $30USD/night. At times there was no electricity, and at other times there was no water, but the lunch buffet is great (1500Rwsh)- just remember you can only pile up your plate once, so stack it high.

Less than 1 % of Africans have access to morphine which is very cheap and universally used in the Western world. There is so much people in the developed world have access to and we take it as a given that these should be available to everyone.

This was built in 1990 and runs for 74 km from Uganda, through Rwanda, to the Congo around the base of the volcanoes. It's purpose to keep the wildlife in the forest and the non-wildlife out. This is mostly successful except for the odd annoyed water buffalo that punches the odd hole through and the gorilla ...

    We had a great ride on the top of the truck this morning. All tucked up under a big rug and felt very insulated against the wind. It was chilly ,even with wearing layers. Some great scenery along the way. We travelled up high on the mountain saddle, with deep valleys on either side of the truck. Looks of terraced farming again. Kigali is quite town there is real evidence of modernisation, and a long side are modest buildings or mud huts. The city is not on ...

    ... of bright lights, big city were welcome indeed. We stayed at the hotel The Mille Collines which the movie Hotel Rwanda was based on. Rooms were basic, but had a fantastic view of the city and an extremely decadent breakfast buffet. And just like every other European equivalent, this capital city's luxuries and tidiness came at a cost. Dave was able to get the oil changed for roughly $100, the hotel was the price of a nice NYC ...

    ... was incredible. I had previously heard that Africa is much more beautiful than people expect, and I quickly realized that I, too, was not prepared to see such picturesque landscapes.

    Another impression was made on our first visit to a village savings and loans group. We pulled over to the side of the road and found them having their weekly meeting outside behind a hedge at ...
