Rwanda

Travel blogger "Chocolaty Prints" at New Cactus Restaurant in Kigali, Rwanda by photographer Gunvor Eline Jakobsen.

A couple of months ago I finally got to visit Rwanda, a country that has silently been in my dreams for years. Together with Karen Kana, the lovely girl behind the Ugandan blog Chocolaty Prints,  we managed to get a quick look around town before heading on to our next stop.

Being based in Uganda, Karen and I took the local bus overnight from Kampala reaching Kigali in the early morning hours.  As I slowly started waking up from my bumpy sleep on the bus, the land of the thousand hills was already beaming in the morning sun with its tea plantations along the road coming to life. I was amazed. The country was everything and more than I had expected. With Karen fast asleep next to me, I was suddenly wide awake with excitement.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have many hours in Kigali before heading on to the next country. However, we did manage to get some great food. Our lunch options went quickly from savoury to sweet, and we ended up at the New Cactus with its proper view over the city. Certainly not a bad option!
