... God. He is engaged in life to its fullest. As a teenager, during the time of the genocide, he left home...snuck away to serve the current President as a rebel fighter to free his country from the terrors of it's previous leadership. As he saw the President come into power he became his body guard and today he thanks God for His mercy that he survived to have a family of his own, a thriving business after a childhood of refuge camps, hunger and fear. He, his family ...

... with the boys coming home from school. We said goodbye and shook hands with everyone except Kazungu to whom we gave a ride into his village school. It was amusing to watch the children gather around the car in stunned silence and watch Kazungu get out from between two Mzungus! The shock and awe on their open faces were so funny, we couldn’t help laughing. He’ll be a hero and the focus of attention for at least a short while.

And I thought I had no sense of distance

... her house was very close by.

Well! I was becoming increasingly worried as we got farther and farther from town, since we had to have the bus back by a certain time. We were on rutted dirt roads, and kept going farther and farther up the hills - so far in fact, that my ears were popping with the pressure changes. Finally we came to the girl's home - a mud hut on the top of a hill in a grove of banana trees. No electricity, no running water, no ...

... and a really nice ensuite washroom. It's a really nice refuge at the end of the day. The hotel has a terraced eating/sitting area, and it's where I am sitting as I write this blog. I have a lovely view down a valley and up the other side of the valley to one of Kigali's many huge hills.

After we stowed our stuff, we set off to the site of the memorial for the Belgian soldiers who were killed by the Presidential Guard on April 7, 1994. The ...

... us. He asked why we were taking pictures of the government house, declaring sternly that "we have a problem". Thankfully he soon realized that we were just clueless tourists, and let us go on our merry way. Next stop was a mall for diapers and coffee. There was a movie theater on the top floor. Mark and I went to check out the day's movies, but found that none were listed on the screens. After a wait we were handed a printed piece of paper ...

    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.
