Kigali is one of the best cities in the world!! Real roads! Lights at night! Boda bodas! The weather! Beautiful jewelry shops! SMOOTHIES!!! AND BURGERS!!!!!!

I'll never get over the taste of home in a fruit smoothie and a cheeseburger.

Plan of action: get a SIM card for my little phone and go to the clothing market.

Since some places don't have wifi, and family needs to know I'm alive, I went ahead and g...

Never been so happy to leave a place at 5 a.m. so quickly. Blah blah blah same creepy guys at the bus station and same kind of bus today, but no charger.

Before we left to the work site, the family agreed to take...

It's cold up here in Mount Kilimanjaro and my body isn't adjusting well - my nose is runny and the sweaters are uncomfortable after climbing up the steepness of the area to reach our work site of the day.

Fun fact: the Chagga tribe may have neighbors all over but they don't see each other's houses because they plant like a hundred thousand trees in between. Exaggeration but maybe not, you actually can't s...
