Rwanda blog 1: My week in pics

What a week it has been! I started the week with packing and preparation in Copenhagen, where I caught my flight to africa on monday afternoon. On Tuesday, I landed in Kigali, my new home at least for the next 3 months. Im now on my fifth day of my internship as a dietitian, what can I say it's great, however not yet in full swing. Anyway, I let my pictures tell a story!

Leaving Copenhagen

Its not unreasonable expensive here, but costs add up quickly. A good thing is that transport can be cheap. Moto taxi for instance is super convenient way of getting around the city, but they are not very safe. No matter where you are, there are always drivers nearby. Highest price I have paid for my longest ride (ca 8-9 km) was Rwf 800 or 85 euro cents.

Went to the Kimironko, the largest market in Kigali yesterday. A place worth visiting!

Our office on the second floor:

The best way to see Kigali is by running outside- cheap, quick and fun ...but physically demanding.

People really love carrying stuff on their head

Climbing Mt Kigali- easy climb, nice view and good company!
