Postcard from Rwanda: Kigali

12 Nov

Apologies for the silence; I was away for work. But I was lucky enough to be in a gorgeous country–Rwanda, the land of a thousand hills. I had known about its tragic past (visiting the Kigali Genocide Memorial is a sobering experience), but had not realized how hilly and beautiful it was. The verdant landscape and vibrant colors were a pleasure to behold. And the capital city, Kigali, was  bustling, with motorcycle taxis taking passengers to and fro.  The photos below are from street level, from the unfinished top of the Kigali City Tower, and from the vantage point of a hill on the outskirts of the capital, from which we were able to observe striking clouds at dusk, some dumping rain over far parts of the city.
