After a long and tedious journey of two days, I have arrived in Kigali. I’m not quite sure how, but Kigali (and I’m hoping the rest of Rwanda) is even more green than Cameroon. I woke up at a quality 5:30 am to lovely worship songs in Ikinyarwanda as the Holy Day was celebrated throughout the city. Even though today was supposed to be spent resting up for a busy orientation on Monday, my fellow Fulbrighters and I couldn’t resist a little exploration. Most Rwandans apparently spend their Sundays at home as the city center was quite sleepy, but we still found plenty to see. Below are a few photos of this beautifully green and spacious capital city:ImageImageImageImage
