This week, from Monday until Wednesday, Melissa and I travelled to Gisenyi, a town in the Western province of Rwanda which borders Lake Kivu and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Everything about Gisenyi, including the bus ride there, was breathtaking. While stunning landscapes and rollings hills are standard fare for Rwanda, Gisenyi distinguishes itself with Lake Kivu. Its cool breeze and calming presence make it a destination for both domestic and international tourists. Luckily for us, one of our friends, Abdou, lives in Gisenyi, and was incredibly generous and introducing us to his family, bringing us to lunch, and showing us the lake and the hot springs. All in all, our trip to Gisenyi was refreshing and relaxing, and highlights the incredible diversity in landscape offered by Le Pays des Milles Collines.
