Farewell Rwanda

Thursday, 2 Jun 2011 | Views [1212]

After observing basket weaving and banana beer making yesterday and visiting the Golden Monkeys the day before, we headed back from Musanze. Before we arrived in the twelve hour purgatory of sallow lighting, seriously bad food, and two inch bugs zapping ... Read more >

Golden Monkeys

Tuesday, 31 May 2011 | Views [401]

The world stands still

Saturday, 28 May 2011 | Views [431]

Not one additional peacekeeper arrived in Rwanda before the war was over.  Belgian UN peacekeepers were evacuated at the start of the genocide. General Romeo Dallaire told New York that as few as 5,000 troops were needed to instill peace.  Instead, ... Read more >
