I am finally here in Kigali, Rwanda, the capital. On the bus ride to our beautiful hostel, we saw parts of the city and it was absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to explore tomorrow.
So, the flight was something, The longest flight I’ve ever been on. We flew out of Buffalo to JFK then JFK to Qatar(which was about 13 hours) then Qatar to Uganda(5 hours) then Uganda to Rwanda( an hour ). I did pretty well, it was towards the end of the 13 hour flight where I was getting anxious to get off the plane. My ankles were swollen a little bit, still are.
We are staying at the Discover Youth Hostel, it’s very nice! Great outdoor area to hangout and relax. Our room is dorm style, 4 of us to one room with bunk beds. There is no AC, so I am thankful I brought a portable fan.
We also just had our first village meal together at the hostel, it was very good. They have tiny baby bananas that are so delicious!
Ok time to disconnect from the the social media world and and actually talk to people.
