“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.” – Rosalia de Castro

Rwanda, full of surprises… After visiting the East, now its time to explore the Western Province of Rwanda (3 hours drive from Kigali).
Rubavu is a district in Western Province, Rwanda. Its capital is Gisenyi, Rwanda’s biggest beach resort and border city. Gisenyi is located in the shore of Lake Kivu which is the sixth largest lake in Africa. It lies on the border between Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda.
I decided to take a Sunday morning walk near the beach. The road which used to be empty during the week suddenly reminded me of a festive area! Young-old, man-women, sports teams, dancers, musicians, runners, swimmers, etc..! Everyone was there! As if there was a big colorful Rubavu gathering! This country makes me smile… =)
Especially these primary school kids seem to enjoy themselves! Diving, swimming, bury themselves into the sand etc…
What I will miss the most in Rwanda are the children…Their warmth, sincerity, natural smile and curious looks…
