Kigali and Rwanda are perhaps most known for the horrific genocide against the Tutsi in 1994. However, since then the country has put a lot of effort into transforming itself and making it a better place for citizens and visitors. Did you know that Kigali is officially the Cleanest City in Africa?
In addition to rebuilding its urban and social infrastructure, arts and culture are also thriving in modern day Kigali. In fact, there are many local galleries and museums you can visit in addition crafts markets. What an interesting and rich city. I hope to visit soon.
