Rwanda

Africa: Rwanda - Gorilla Tracking

When I think of Rwanda, I think of all the dozens of children who came running over to us and shouted, "Hello, hello. How are you?" They had a smile as wide as a rainbow and just wanted to see us up close and greet us. They were fascinated if we took their picture and let them see it. And then…
