Firstly, my impressions of Kigali, Rwanda's capital, were that it was a very safe, clean and relaxed capital city with an average temperature in the day of around 24 degrees. On our way to various meetings, we would see groups of 10-20 public workers walking in a line with their brooms or pots of paint over their shoulders going to paint or clean the roads and we always saw women weeding immaculately landscaped public areas. Although it is a very poor country, it does not have the problems of violence and lack of safety that Colombia has. In its post-genocide era, the society and government clearly made a conscious effort to create a more harmonious society. Below are some photos of the roads and landscapes in Kigali.
On one of our breaks in between meetings, we went to an Agricultural Fair and wandered around vast fields displaying the various seeds and foods available in the region, as well as new technologies available to farmers. It was really interesting and I particularly liked seeing the silk wormed attached to the silk machine! Below are some photos:
