2011 Student Team arrives: Eager to get started and happy to reconnect with friends!

Well hello to all you travel enthusiasts, we are so excited to be back "in the land of a thousand" Rwanda! It is almost as if we never left. I guess in my mind I had not as Rwanda has always been a priority in my mind since leaving last June(2010). It was so great to catch up with Lama yesterday and to see some familiar faces at la Palisse Hotel in Kigali. Lama has shared some updated information and photos with us on how the Covaga Innovation Center is coming along. I can't wait to get back to work and see all the friends that we made one year ago.

Amy, Will and Wade arrived last night but were up and at it early this morning eager to get out and explore. John and Drew will be arriving tonight and that will be our team. Lots to do tomorrow including a trip to the Genocide museum in Kigali and a tour of Kigali. Monday we are off to meet our building partner at the Nelson Mandela Education center and then to Gashora to meet with the Covaga women. So excited can hardly wait!

We will try to keep you posted as best we can however Internet is a dodgy at best.

Miliwe! Cheers
