The bus has let me out at a familiar stop. I had been told to take the coach for Rwamagana in the east but to get out at 'Cumi magatanu' which was out past the city limits. In fact, it isn't that far out and we know it well as the place where we first arrived in Kigali with our Land Rover Discovery.

We are on the move again. For two days we have taken a coach excursion into the deep south of Rwanda to Butare. This is partly sightseeing and partly business to visit Tharcisse Gatwa, one of the Mission Rwanda trustees.

I am staying at the Scripture Union Guest House in the up-market diplomatic district of Kigali. It is Sunday, and as ever, all is peaceful. Little has changed since we first came to know this place.

This week I am staying in Rwamagana, an hour's bus ride to the east of Kigali. The rains seem to have well and trully disappeared and the air has become hot and dusty.

Nyamirambo is known as one of the poorer areas of Kigali and where Mission Rwanda first started work. The main street is a bustling thoroughfare of clothes shops and beauty parlours.

An exciting night. Heavy rain on the roof made any effort at sleep futile. The frequent lightning and ear-splitting thunderclaps overhead provided entertainment by way of compensation.
