      Why I'm here, Part 1

      A travel blog entry by deniseang on Aug 06, 2014

      Visited 15 households in Muhanga, around an hour and a half northwest of Kigali. It was a little disheartening to see a low adoption rate of the high efficiency cookstoves (at least as a primary use stove). One woman showed us how the stove had poked perfectly right angled holes clear through her pot when she was making ubugali (cassava paste) (probably due to heat and the force required to mash up the root plant). Which brings up the point, as always, that program design must be informed ...

      ... speed things up a little for us. They were, to my surprise, interested in trying to help. So, little by little the breakfast appeared. I was glad to see we were staying at a place where they had personal resolve to take care of the guests.

      Moise showed up a little late today, but that was okay. We had the time. It was a long and rainy and very rough drive out to MUGINA for the baptismal counseling. As of yesterday, 10 requests had come in for ...

      ... and lasts about 1 hour, with only 20 minutes of that being on the actual canopy walk so me and another friend saved ourselves for the walk we would take the next day and we just chilled in the sun and I did research for the trip to Kampala (coming soon!). When the other guys got back we went to look for our hotel. There are only a few hotels near to nyungwe forest so they can pretty much charge what they like, our hotel was expensive relative to what we would normally have chosen ...

      ... a few seconds of hesitation and asking Leopold (colleague) and Bosco (driver) 'so, this is definitely safe then?’ quite a few times but they reassured me that you can only hear the bombs one hour upriver near Goma, so I slept sound.

      The journey was 6 hours in a pickup truck which isn’t as bad as it sounds. I spent the whole journey staring out of the windows astounded that you could actually build a country on so many hills and looking out for ...

      Last Tuesday was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip so far! Fiji was fun, West Coast Trail was awesome and Karen's Cottage very cool. But seeing Gorillas in the wild is absolutely amazing! We are still now, days later, pinching ourselves over how incredible it was.



      The setting was Kahuzi Biega National Park, located about an hours’ drive (40km) from Bukavu. We set out around 7am with a friend Katherine, who is here for 2 months conducting ...
