Safe arrival in Kamembe

We had a very good journey down using a different route from the one we have used before. The idea was to drive to Kibuye a town on the shores of Lake Kivu and then take a boat down to Kamembe. But we found out that the boat was not operating that day! But the whole drive was just beautiful, with the stunning hilly scenery unfolding bend after bend in the road – and there were lots of bends. Here is a photo taken while we were driving along.

On the way we stopped for a picnic. No lay-bys on this road so we found a flat bit of rough ground. Within minutes, children arrived and then some adults. We never know where they come from, but they always do. Anyway, we had food left over and our driver distributed this amongst them.

This is the view looking westwards from Peace Guest House at sunset .
