Nyabugogo | Rwanda

by - 11:00 PM

It's chaos at Nyabugogo bus central with vendors, moto drivers, and Rwandans going about their business!

I was headed for Nyamata and Ntarama to see genocide memorial at two churches, one of which has a mass grave of 55,000 women, men and children who were tortured and killed there. I heard the story from a young man who survived the genocide when he was 7.

I've read countless books and biographies on Rwandan history, but to see it in reality is just terrible and heart-wrenching.. it is inspiring though to see how Rwandans have been moving forward and doing some great things to build up their nation as one people.
