SATURDAY MORNING ||
Today I watched him help her brush her teeth. She is the last one that really needs help to get ready in the mornings, and I know that will change all too soon.
Today we walked up the hill to Ryabega Centre to catch the bus to Kigali. We left our car at home, as we're so tired of it having problems every time we go to Kigali, and we just wanted to have a relaxing day. As we got close to the bus stop, we saw the bus from Nyagatare approaching. Perfect timing.
Today we were lucky that we could sit beside each other on the bus. Today they enjoyed buying a lollypop from the vendors selling at each stop. Bus cost: 12,000 rwf (106kr/$16.50)
Today it was easy to find a taxi to take us to our destination for the day, The Mamba Club. Taxi cost: 4000 rwf (35kr/$5.50).
Today we jumped on the trampoline and enjoyed a popcorn snack while Far took a moto downtown to pick up a package that arrived for us.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON ||
Today we enjoyed swimming in the cool pool while waiting for our new friends to arrive.
Today he sat in the shade and warmed up while everyone else was still in the pool.
Today we ate lunch together with our new friends, and got to know each other better.
Today she ran back and forth from the pool to the bowling alley, alternating between watching us bowl and sitting in the pool.
Today he did his best to bowl, and didn't do too badly. Today they were so amused by watching the pins being manually put up by the guys working in the back.
Today they swam and swam and swam with their new friends.
Today we sat in the shade, talking and watching them swim.
SATURDAY EVENING ||
Today we waited, tired from our day at the pool, for our pizza to arrive. Today we were thankful for electronics and a good internet connection.
Today we ate overlooking Kigali city.
Today we enjoyed eating pizzas we'd "built" ourselves. Today we chuckled that our pizzas arrived before our starters.
Today cheetah was a ninja. Obviously.
Today we had to walk from the restaurant to a bigger road to look for a taxi, as the restaurant didn't have the number for a taxi. After a 10 minute wait one came past, but it was almost too much for a tired four year old to cope with.
Today she fell asleep in my arms on the bus ride home.
Today we were so happy to be able to have a day out, by the pool, with friends, even though it meant a 6 hour return trip.
