In 2012 however it’s hard to think about Kigali as a city that has suffered less than 20 years ago: it’s clean, it’s safe and…you have to wear a helmet when you go on a motorbike?! That doesn’t even happen in Rome!
To set the tone for my journey I decided to visit the genocide memorial. Indeed no matter how incredibly quickly Rwanda has moved on, its good to learn from the terrible events and be humbled by the progress made since then. A trip to the memorial is definitely recommended.
