The forty TechWomen delegation members have all arrived in Kigali Rwanda as of today. We spent the morning of our first official day touring the capital, changing money, and shopping for crafts. In the afternoon, we laid flowers on the mass graves and spent several hours at the Genocide Memorial Centre. We just got back from a splendid dinner and dance hosted for us in a private home by the TechWomen Emerging Leaders whom we mentored from Rwanda. We are all tired and more-or-less jet lagged but experienced today as a powerful introduction to the culture we have come to learn about. I am still thinking through the exhibits and museum displays of photos, bones, and artifacts of genocide victims. This will take time to process.
