Picture Story: A Look Into My Life

In case you are wondering, what am I doing in Rwanda? Do I have rich parents who decided to give me touring money to visit East Africa? Did I save enough to just come lounge in Rwanda? Am I working here, and if so, how did I get the job?

Well, am working here in Rwanda, with an organisation called Art of Conservation.. How I knew about the job? Believe it or not, through twitter. I know a tweep who knows the directors and when I told him I want to work in Rwanda, he provided me with a link to the organization. I checked it out and decided to apply for the job. How I got the job? Well, through my own merit. See, knowing about a job and getting it are two different things.

Anyway, I’ve been here almost two weeks and I like working here. I’m an administrative intern, which means I do most of the paperwork and blogging sometimes. This organization teaches kids about conservation and health through art.

A typical day for me begins around 6:30 am when I wake and take breakfast at the guest house where I stay. Here’s some photos of the room that is my residence:

Of course you may want to see my bathroom too; am just guessing so here you go:

Okay, now to the table where I sometimes pretend to sit and learn French.

I spend my nights watching series and reading novels. Here’s my library so far:

And lastly, a view of the outside from my room:

    I guess i like the simplicity but the table can be better. Chunga you dont roll and you are poked by the lamp.

    I did make the table tidier, but I think an untidy table is a sign of a busy mind!

    So that’s how you got the job……… Must be exciting to embark on a new journey, with a new job and in a new country. Am sure you must love it. You seem to be settling in very well. Wishing you the best!

    thanks. I didn’t want to join the rat race in Kenya and thought I could do better in Rwanda, working while traveling or traveling while working!

    I love Rwanda! If you doubt it, ask Gisele and Nadia.

    Now googling Gisele and Nadia. Why didn’t you call me when you were here? It’s hard to not-like this country.
