I failed to mention security/crime/safety.
Every place you enter, be it shop, restaurant, museum, gallery, hotel or air port you are searched as is the car.
Police and military work together and are highly visible almost on every street corner – relaxed, friendly, armed and visible. Which is why I could happily walk in the dark alone in an African city and feel completely safe – no one jostled me, hassled me or made me feel nervous
Early start for Nairobi
What a stunning surprise Rwanda has been
And I didn’t tell you plastic bags banned here (and Uganda) only paper allowed
City Absolutely spotless – quite remarkable – not a piece of litter anywhere
And I noticed – no graffiti
And the traffic lights go into Amber ftom midnight till 630am! So sensible
Very liveable city
A Nation’s pride
Rwanda acquired, last week, their first Airbus 330-200
It sits on top of the hill at the airport for all to see and was shown to me with such pride
On its arrival in Rwanda it flew over the city for everyone to see and admire
Definitely a people looking to the future
