Family & Friends,
Third (& Last) Top Ten More Reasons that I Know that I’m Back in Rwanda
30. Posters and announcements, “Be on time, the world will not wait for us.” But, who cares.
29. The buzzing of a mosquito is a relief since the mosquitoes which spread malaria are silent.
28. Men’s shoes are two feet long with 12 inches consisting of long pointed toes.
27. Many taxis are bicycles with a nice padded seat behind the driver. They actually race past my car at great speeds on downhill portions of the highway.
26. If a bicycle is not a taxi, it is used as a wheelbarrow to transport very heavy goods.
25. If you own a car, you should be ready to act as a constant impromptu taxi (and it is fun)!
24. Rwandans are unbelievably patient . . . until there is a steering wheel in their hands.
23. Men walk hand in hand with each other, but their “orientation” is not what you think.
22. Children tie up banana leaves and use it joyously as a soccer ball. I must dodge school students who are playing soccer in the road with an empty water bottle.
21. Every person in African can work my i-phone better than I can. They move the “sim card” from one device to another before you can say, “Vuba vuba” (quick, quick).
It is good to be back home,
