Week in Review #24 - Rwanda Edition

We are back from a fantastic 4-day weekend in Rwanda.  Our first stop was the town of Ruhengeri and the Parc National des Volcans.  While Elizabeth, Leigh, and Rachel trekked through the forrest to find mountain gorillas, I climbed Mt. Bisoke.  Yes, Bisoke is an extinct volcano that is 3,711 meters (12,175 ft) high.  No, I was not really in the best shape to do such a hike.  Yes, I repeatedly wondered what I had gotten myself into.  BUT, it was absolutely gorgeous once I made it up there and saw the crater lake at the top.  Separate posts on the whole adventure and our stop in the capital of Kigali will come later this week.  Hope you are having a good weekend!
