Brenda’s Travel Diary

Sunday, 10 Feb 2008

Location: Kigali, Rwanda

MapInnocent (from WV) met us at the hotel here this morning and arranged for a friend of his to meet us concerning our ride to Kahama. We now leave at six am with our new driver in a reliable car and only have to pay 500USD each way for the trip. Everyone can stop being concerned, we will be travelling in daylight hours and we hear the road is paved all of the way!!!
We went for lunch today at Hotel des Milles Collines since MJ had never been there. (For some of you, that is the hotel from the movie "Hotel Rwanda.") We ran into some guys that we met in Nairobi who are here filming a documentary about participants in genocides around the world. Following lunch we went to the University of Kigali for one of Costa's friends Disertation. He did really well and Costa told us that his score was the highest that you can get in the school. We walked home from the University with Costa and got a good look at the city. Now it's time to pack and get ready for the morning! I'll log back on in Tanzania ASAP!!!!
