For diverse wildlife, a range of treks and hikes and a window into the country’s history, include Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda in your African itinerary.
I like this photo for the juxtapositions: rough brown wall against smooth bright blue door.
I was especially struck by the crafsmanship and colors of the woven bowls.
My big international adventures of the year were a week in Rwanda and 6 months in Colombia.
On the morning of my last day in Rwanda, I visited the old home of former President Juvenal Hayarimana. When his plane was shot down over the compound in 1994, killing him and the president of Burundi, it was the spark needed to usher in the genocide. It was both eery and interesting to walk […]
During the 1994 genocide, a thousand people sought refuge at the Hotel Des Mille Collines.
Chimpanzees, unlike other primates, are always on the move.

The lodge boasts 24 luxury rooms, each of which includes a private balcony overlooking the forest.
All of the villagers were welcoming, and curious about our presence.
