A smattering of photos

With Boniface, his wife, and most of his kids.
Beautiful downtown Gisenyi, by the bus station
The Gisenyi market, where you can find fabric, vegetables, ghee, and various odds and ends made in China or Kenya.

Gahonda, the silverback of the Sabyinyo Group of gorillas, contemplates a deep thought. Gahonda apparently means "to crush" in Kinyarwanda. At 400 pounds, I don't doubt his ability.

Hi Morgan, I have just read your blog and loved it. Can you tell me a bit more on how you found your way to Rwanda...how did you become involved, what steps did you take to get there etc. You are an inspiration to like minded people. Congratulations on a job well done!

hi morgan,

I got to know a man coming from Rwanda. He fascinated me somehow and I wanted to surprise him with some rwandan expressions. (In 2006, I have been to Tanzania and therefore had started to learn Kisuaheli...I like foreign languages).
so that is how I stepped onto your pages - What I discovered so far-I liked very much,
maybe I manage to learn some Kinyarwanda with your help...
Regards,
Bilymona

Rwanda was simply one of the greatest trips of my life. I also went to Murambi and met the survivor.

I also saw the Sabinyo group and saw the same Silverback
