Hike to the Rice Paddies
After our contribution to community service day, we went on a 3 hour hike to the rice paddies outside of Rubona, led by Prosper, an ASYV counselor and agricultural specialist. Seeing rural Rwanda was an amazing experience. On our way down, we were greeted by many of the locals with smiles and shouts of "Muraho!" ("Hello!"). When we got there, a group of Rwandan kids immediately ran towards us and began to play with us, somersaulting over bales of hay. It was truly heartwarming.
