There were many administrative obstacles on the way but our good friend Rob Hoy helped us to overcome these. It’s a long, long story but our aim was to get the filters to Kigali to fit in with his arrival there and for him to take them down to Peace Guest House and then on to Nkombo Island. It’s all finally happened and the photos will show the different stages of the journey.
