We were up early this morning...here is a picture looking out our bedroom window...nice!
Anxious to have a look around, Gordon, Steve and I headed out for a walk.
The cabins are very cute and look great from the outside... unfortunately, they are in dire need of maintenance/upgrading inside...
Our guide brought out a map and showed us the route we had taken yesterday...and the route we'd be taking back today. Yesterday we drove from Kigali, to Gitarama, south to Butare...and then west through the Nyungwe Forest National Park, to Cyangugu.
Today, on our way back, we are going to follow the very windy road along the lake to Kibuye then east to Gitarama and to Kigali.

We stopped at a beautiful beach on Lake Kivu in Kibuye for a box lunch that the guest house had packed for us...

It was dark when we arrived back in Kigali...another long day on the bus! We'd had two long days sitting on the bus but it had been really wonderful seeing the beautiful countryside of Rwanda...it's so green and lush! Rwanda is a very small country. Smaller than Vancouver Island where we're from and slightly smaller than the state of Maryland, and it felt like we saw it all.
