My friend, Charlotte, at the Congo border
Me, Angel (our Rwandan friend) and Charlotte
the Hot Springs (if you look closely, you can see where the water is boiling)
me at Paradise Hotel
We kind of saw the "toursity" side of Rwanda and I will tell you that I am enjoying seeing the real country. It's much nicer to spend time with the people in the villages and learn about them vs just being waited on hand and foot in a hotel and not mingling with the people. I feel like I am learning so much more this way.
The Rwandans are very friendly and I really haven't felt unsafe, even in the market. I've been in markets in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Tunisia so I know what it's like to be nervous in a market. I'm not here.
I'll have more later!!
