      Day 4 - OK Visoke, Time to Climb a Volcano!, by EB

      Another early start
      for Paul and I. Dad was informed yesterday that perhaps the 1100m climb to the
      crater lake of Visoke volcanoes would be too much so he remained at the lodge
      and read his book. Paul and I had joked that having another person with us would
      allow us some decent rest time -haha, our joke was realised! After picking up
      our guide, Placid (er lets ponder how I remembered that name!), ...

      ... like eat your meal or get some work done or go to the bathroom—maybe they think they won’t get another chance, or are just too excited for regular protocol. In fact, you live outside of regular protocol. People pepper you with personal questions and are overly concerned with your love life. If you don’t answer, they get angry, as if you OWE them this. Parents make their babies and children greet you as if you are Santa Claus. The children, ...

      ... At the front of the church was a macabre offering—machetes, pipes, and grenade pieces from that day lay before the altar. Hanging from the altar was a purple banner which said in Kinyarwanda “If you knew me, you would not kill me.” Though, in the genocide, it was often neighbor against neighbor. Especially in these small villages, everyone knew everyone, and knew everyone well. Our guide at Ntarama was a survivor. Her eyes turned glassy as stepped out of the ...

      ... even more grey. When I had my mugging incident, someone told me I shouldn't have been out with only one girl with me. I can understand not walking alone, but to say that I need a male escort in the middle of the day in a nice part of town? Too much.
