    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.

    ... is the silver back snoozing and totally uninterested in our antics as we try and get pictures of fact he just turned his back on us. There are 2 juveniles moving about slowly and they walk right through the group of us...just stand still says the ranger! We spend an hour with the troop watching and taking pictures. This is their rest time after early morning foraging. When the silver back sits up and begins to look around the ranger moves us back out of the way and we have ...

    ... Tricky! One guy presented a study on cystosarcosis, a nasty parasite that causes epilepsy in people. It is spread from humans to pigs and was found to be more prevalent where people shat outside rather than had latrines. It was also a problem when there was no sewer system so the poo contaminated water flowed through areas where the roaming domestic pigs would come in contact with the parasite. Freezing the pork or boiling and cooking it kills the bugs that infect humans ...

    ... So, the plan is to 'not be available' on Wednesday night, a 'do not disturb' on the door should do it. I'll get the hotel to tell Enos to come back the following day where I'll give him the money when I'm in his truck and he's given me the gorilla permit! I'll let you know how that goes, I'm not used to this sort of travelling. It was exhilarating 20 years ago but feels different when you're old and past that stage. No doubt it'll be the ...

    ... these have fast food-type fare, but made with real, fresh ingredients. They're a far cry from Burger King or Taco Bell. We've found a few local buffets where you can fill your plate with local and Western dishes for the equivalent of about $5 CAD. The food is great, but drinks are often either water, beer or some type of sugary soda. Until I came to Rwanda, I didn't even know they still made grape Fanta.

    There are supermarkets ...

    ... hours to get to our safari at the Akagera Game Lodge!!!! We saw so many animals. We were in this cool car truck thing that definitely looks like it's for a safari and the entire roof opens up. So we stood inside and looked at the animals through the top. Tons of baboons. Actually there are baboons wandering outside the hotel and our rooms have instructions on how to handle your encounter with a baboon. Do not feed or taunt ...
