HeHeMobile, The Office, art shopping in Kigali, Rwanda

I am back in the Silicon Valley (land of great Internet access), catching up on blog posts from last week in Rwanda…

On Friday, 7 February, the TechWomen delegation visited CEO Clarisse Iribagiza and her startup team at HeHe (creators of SuperCow games), and Jon Stever of The Office, a co-working space in Kigali, Rwanda.  After this last morning with our delegation, five of us visited the Inema Art Center and Ivuka Arts Kigali to enjoy a better class of local painting.

Then, eleven TechWomen mentors headed out to the mountains with Terra Incognita Ecotours on our way to visit the Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys.  Along the road to the Mountain Gorilla View Lodge, we saw two genocide memorials that our driver Charles said were graves of thousands slaughtered at checkpoints during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. Charles was part of the Rwandan army that stopped the genocide. We also saw delights such as a young biker hitching a truck ride up the mountain, and rolled up bee hives in the eucalyptus trees that line the road.
