Getting back into the swing of things

We have been coming to Rwanda for something over ten years now. The people and geography are becoming familiar to us and with each trip easing back into Rwandan life gets a little easier. Kigali is certainly bcoming familiar to us. We have long-since learnt to expect the unexpected, like the electricity suddenly disappearing or waking up to find no water in the taps as happened this morning.

Porridge at Rugende

Our porridge project in Rugende was initiated in April. This semi-rural district just outside Kigali is one where under-fed children are not hard to find and the project provides a daily meal for these children. The church running the project for us organised a grand opening with local dignitaries coming along.

Mellisa gets her rabbits

When we visited Mellisa a few days ago to inspect the repair work which had been carried out to her house, she somewhat speculatively, asked for a rabbit. So, this being Saturday and a day for adventure, we took on the challenge of procuring two rabbits, preferably alive rather than dead.
