The last couple of days brought more incredible experiences. Exploration of the neighborhoods around our motel in Kigali, revealed more of the people that call Rwanda home. The natives here are reflections of character types that I'm familiar with from the States. Althought I don't speak the language, I could tell the overall context of most nearby conversations. I also took a trip to Bugesera to visit the Covaga Weavers. These women were talented, joyful and warm. It was an honor to share some time with them and watch their craft in action.
