Kigali must be one of the fastest changing cities in Africa, if not the world. Even in the six months since our last visit, new developments can be seen wherever one looks.
We have moved eastwards to Rwamagana, an hour's bus ride form Kigali.
The day was always going to be strenuous. Just getting across Kigali to Nyabugogo for the bus to Kibungo meant an hour's walk, albeit in the cool early morning.
We are in for a long hot day today. The rain of last week seems to have gone and the heat is more like a real Rwandan dry season.
Africa is nothing if not unpredictable and Rwanda is no exception.
Pastor Immaculee is an energetic and driven woman. Her parish is at Rutonde, north of Kigali where we are helping her to provide for the poorest children.
We couldn't let the year run out without another visit to our projects in Rwanda. Bronwen and Ann have been checking up on things for three weeks over November and December.
What we thought would pass as a quiet summer turned out being spend organising the launch of our latest project in Rutonde, north of Kigali.
Today's excursion took us up-country to Rutonde district, 10 kilometres north of Kigali. We were visiting the Parish of Pastor Immaculee Mukamusoni who runs a children's project up there.
