I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Greetings from Rwanda

You were expecting maybe a gorilla?

I got into Kigali last night, and so far haven't done anything except check into my hotel, sleep, and eat breakfast. The actual tour doesn't begin until tomorrow, so although I'll probably take a walk around the area today, and get myself adjusted to the altitude -- it's about the same as Denver and I already have a headache -- I probably won't have many interesting pictures.

But this baby palm tree on the lawn here at the Hotel des Mille Collines made me smile. I woke up to birds whistling, and the swish of brooms as workers swept the parking lot outside, and breakfast included tree tomato juice, which tastes something like very tart raspberries, so I know I'm definitely not in Belgium anymore.
