Rwanda is called the land of a thousand hills, and this picture really is a testament to the beauty found here.

It was taken on the terrace of a nearby hotel, Select, where I was enjoying lunch from a really good Belgian chef. Sorry, I was so hungry that I forgot to take pictures of my meal: beef carpaccio salad, goat cheese on a baguette, tilapia in a white wine sauce, and passion fruit ice cream. It was pretty much awesome.


On another recent eating foray, I went to Heaven restaurant in town with work colleagues. It's run by Americans, so the service here is fantastic...unlike Rwandan standards, where you would be lucky to get your food within 45 mins after ordering. But the best aspect of the restaurant is its location, perched on top of a hill and overlooking city lights (few that there may be). On nights without any clouds, you can look up and see numerous satellites orbiting the earth's equator. They zoom across the sky, unmanned rockets that hold up our pathways of communication.
