Dr. Glass is traveling in central Africa and will be blogging periodically from Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
I had the opportunity to visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial today. The memorial was opened in 2004, the 10th anniversary of the genocide. The memorial is at the site where 250,000 victims are buried.
I am off to DR Congo in the morning. I will be taking a car to the border of Rwanda/DR Congo, to cross the border and arrive in the city of Bukavu, DR Congo. The trip should take about 5-6 hours over some rough roads, but beautiful terrain. Rwanda is often called the land of thousand hills “des Mille Collines.” I have never driven this route, I usually take a small plane to the border city of Cyanangugu – but I’m feeling like an adventure. I will try to blog again on arrival in DR Congo.
