  • [33/643] KigaliDidn't do too much on this day. I went out and explored a little bit of the city. When I got into the small town center, I found a place to get a local SIM card (about $0.70 - 500 francs). Posted by mkwan in Around the World | Jul 3, 2017
  • [32/643] Fly from Addis Ababa to Kigali, RwandaManaged to get all the stuff I had left at the Addissinia Hotel back into my backpack which was back to complete fullness.  I still wanted to figure out how to get rid of some stuff. Over the past Posted by mkwan in Around the World | Jul 2, 2017

  • 'ZunguWell into my third week here in Kigali and my initial fascination with the beautifully-printed dresses, tropical landscape and moto taxis has now given way to the more subtle undertones of Rwandan living--the good, the annoying, the neutral and the Posted by jennpete in This is Africa | Jul 30, 2014
