My friend, David (who I talked with about math and evolution on previous blogs, links are below.) went on a backpacking trip in Africa recently. This is his story of the experience of other cultures.
This is the fourth blog in part 2 of this series. Here is the link for the page where the others can be found:
June 8, Red Rocks, Musanze:
We got up early today to head out of Kigali and go to Musanze. It was a four-hour-long bus ride over the hills to the northern province. Once we got there, we went to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International where we had a tour of the building and learned about the mountain gorillas. We were introduced to the work of Dian Fossey and saw the original desk where she worked.
After that, we dropped by the house where we would be staying so we could leave our stuff there. Then we went out for lunch in a little bakery/restaurant. The small place had the oven just behind the counter, so the front was hot. Half of us sat at an outside table, and the other half of us were inside. The owner of the bakery was also the owner of the island where we would be staying to camp in a few days.
Later, we went back to the house called Red Rocks where we were staying, and just relaxed. The whole house was just for ourselves. Upon arriving at the house and settling down, I was briefly overcome with a sense of being home as I walked into the living room. I saw Kyle, Sophie and Alessandra just laying around, watching T. V., and enjoying passing the time. It felt like a college dorm room. I was really taking in that moment, knowing that it wouldn’t last forever.
