An Afternoon at a Federal Prison

The set up was about the same as it was the last time, except there were only four genocidaires that were there to talk to us. We had met two of them before: the woman who helped at the barricades, and Valerie (I was a journalist) Bemeriki. We listened to their stories.

I think the two men and the woman were honest when they said they felt real remorse. The ...

It's just around the next bend.....

On this day we had a few stops. Our friend Heather has a foster child in Rwanda sponsored by Bridges of Hope. She has brought gifts for the child and her foster family and we have been making arrangements to meet with them. The priest who runs the organization had called and said he would come around 6 in the evening to meet wither. Lisa was going along for translation purposes and me, for moral support. In ...

This center was very interesting. It had a section about the Rwandan Genocide, and also a section for other genocides around the world. The most powerful part of it to me was the "Children's Room," a place where each child had a picture (usually the only one the family had) with a caption of what their favorite food, their age, their last words, and how they died. It was truly ...

... photos of my Rwandan brethren enjoying their meal.

Mr. Mundeli invited me into the dining room which had been nicely prepared for the meal. Again those who speak French were invited to the table. We had a wonderful time as we enjoyed the delicious brochettes / kebabs). We exchanged stories as the discussion stayed in the center of the table. It really felt good to be sharing this special day with my Rwandan brethren. I missed my family, but I fully enjoyed being ...

... our plans for the day, and he shared a few stories with me about his earlier trips to Rwanda which began in 1996. He has had the privilege of seeing Rwanda's "Reconstruction" period and of now visiting in a time of peace and general stability.

    The lodge is ok, very basic, it appears it needs a little loving care. Some of the rooms need their faucets fixed in the shower. We were served very good food for dinner and breakfast. The best part was seeing the Baboons in the morning trying to get into the hotel. The staff chase them away. One large one climbed upon the roof and watched over the lodge.
