Today was the 20th celebration of Heroes’ Day in Rwanda:
The National Heroes’ Day falls on every February 1 during which time Rwandan leaders and citizens pause and pay homage to specially fallen compatriots who paid the ultimate price for the greater good.
It was also our second day here in Kigali with the TechWomen delegation. Everything was closed for the morning to honor the heroes who fought against the Rwandan Genocide. So, five of us hired a car to see parts of the city and surrounding area that will not be on our official tour tomorrow. We saw one of the sources of the Nile River and even very briefly saw a monkey running uphill. We also went to the Caplaki craft cooperative and did some shopping.
