Kibuye Getaway

This past weekend, Claire, her mother (who is visiting for two weeks), and I decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kigali and venture off into the countryside. Our destination was the town of Kibuye, which is one of many towns on the shore of Lake Kivu. It is a small town with not too much to do, but that was exactly what we wanted.

We took a three and a half hour bus ride from Kigali through the many hills of Rwanda. The road itself is always twisting and turning and made my stomach to feel a bit uneasy. But it was all worth it to see the gorgeous views.

View from our hotel ($7.00 USD a night!)

We had a relaxing weekend overall. We walked, talked, and ate great food. Can’t ask for anything more than that.
