Umuganda, Lake Kivu
A grey crowned crane almost walked into the hotel breakfast buffet line. Helped out briefly with some umuganda. (The morning of the last Saturday of every month in Rwanda is set aside for mandatory public service.) Then went to Gisenyi on Lake Kivu. Drove by a big national brewery powered by methane from the bottom of the "Exploding Lake." Bought a couple wooden gorilla carvings and some colorful fabric. Walked to the DRC border, but it's $60 to cross, so didn't bother. Walked around a lot. Got delayed by President Kagame's motorcade. Trying to upload pictures, but it's not working.
