Yesterday we took a two hour trip to Kibungo where Mitch and I will work with UNATEK (the university we are partnering with on this AUCC Students For Development project).
We had the opportunity to see the home we'll live in during our time and arranged to have some necessary additions coordinated (beds, pots, pans, plates and the like). Lama Mugabo is our link and representative of Building Bridges with Rwanda. He and I are quite excited to see about developing a small garden in the front yard.
We are clearly the new kids in town and this aspect is impossible to capture via photos without being all the more obvious. We determined that with time, we'd be more familiar and therefore less intrusive with our Nikons. Gathering a following can only be compared with being a celebrity, I suppose. Something I wish wasn't the case.
We returned to Kigali that evening and will remain here until our conference on socio-economic development is finished on Wednesday.
