PAPUA NEW GUINEA | Thu, 31 Jul 2014 | By carolepng | Views [33]

Crawling

RWANDA | Fri, 11 Jul 2014 | By jennpete | Views [24]

Kigali is starting to make a bit more sense.  I've gotten lost about three times in the past two days which just means that I know my way around even that much better now. Luckily Rwanda is a really safe place so I don't have to worry so much about ... Read more >

Land of a Thousand Hills - Kigali to the Virunga Mountains

RWANDA | Mon, 7 Oct 2013 | By yvonnebooth | Views [1611] | Video

As the plane descended into Kigali I expected the black night to be lit up by a soft orange haze, a mix of dust and exhaust fumes illuminated by street light pollution just like I've seen in most developing country cities that I've visited. I expected ... Read more >
