Rwanda and Burundi photos

Monday, February 19th, 2007

My photo taking has started to wane, partly because I am losing the motivation and partly because my little camera died and I don’t like carrying my bigger one.

Here is some of Rwanda and the 1000 hills. Not all of them, but at least six.

Okay, not a very good representation of Burundi, but, they had mildly warmed water in the $20 hotel. That was a first in three months. I don’t care, it is a time I will always remember fondly. Don’t be surprised if my next pictures are of cable tv and a refrigerator, ahhhh, the African dream.

Rwanda my saviour.

I ended up missing all the buses and transport to Kigali, but because of a nice kid who helped me out in trying to get a bus and to finally find a cheap room $4US (yea baby) I ended up having an good time. The place was pretty basic, but it was a clean room with a shower that had super high pressure and the coldest water I had felt in a long time. It was fantastic. To top it off, the place had a restaurant which was a buffet. Lordy, for one dollar, french fries, broiled potatoes, salad, spaghetti, beef, rice, fried plantains, and a fanta for $.35. I was soooooo happy. It was one of my top meals ever. I ended up sleeping fourteen hours all snuggled up in my sleeping back because there was this awesome mountainous chill in the air.

The next day I was a new man. Traveling was interesting again and things were looking up. I headed to the bus company and got my ticket. When the bus came it was a beautiful, comfortable, new bus. We drove through beautiful scenery on roads that were paved and smooth.
