One Week in Rwanda

Rwanda is everything and nothing like I expected it to be. I have been here for a week so far but it has felt like much more than that. The people are so much more friendly than I could ever have thought possible. I have not felt unwelcome so far, despite being an extremely rare presence in Rwanda. I feel like less of an intruder and more of a welcomed guest. I have also notidced how everything is so bright and colorful averywhere you go, pretty much the exact opposite of America. The children we have visited in schools have been amazing. They are so curious and eager to speak in English to you, somthing American children may be less than excited about. Homestays have been such a cool experience in themselvs. The people have been so welcoming and totally open to having us in their homes. Overall, I could not have asked for a better start to this trip.
