On our last day in Rwanda a group of us climbed to the top of Mount Kigali
On our last day in Rwanda a group of us climbed to the top of Mount Kigali. It was the first time during our 10-day reporting trip that I had the time to fully appreciate Rwanda’s gorgeous landscapes. From our vantage point on Mount Kigali, we could see miles into the distance. Our fixer pointed to a cluster of houses tucked between the rolling hills. That’s where he grew up, he told us proudly. We traced the Nyabarongo River, which snakes through a swath of the country and connects to the Nile. The brief respite was a reminder that even after 10 days of forensic reporting across the country we still had only just begun to scratch the surface of this tiny East African country.
