While this picture isn’t necessarily the best quality I had to put this building on the blog as it was my safe place when I lived in Kigali, Rwanda two years ago. This was the place where I got to see the heart of the Rwandan people and ultimately was able to understand the culture fully. This was the hotel where you woke up in the morning to breakfast on the terrace with hot african tea and sweet plantains. It truly was an incredible experience as you felt like royalty inside the bedrooms with the sheer curtains blowing in the wind at night as you laid in a canopy bed listening to the sounds from the city. I would do anything to go back to this place to see the people who run it and just live within the culture one last time.
