Daily Wanderlust: A Hut in Rwanda

Written by on September 6, 2012 in Daily Wanderlust, Escapes - 2 Comments

 En route to finding gorillas during our trek in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, we had to hike uphill, through mountainous farmland.

With clouds hanging low in the sky, and the air thick with humidity and burning, we plowed through fields, climbing ever higher to the bamboo forest and then the jungle.

Along the way, we passed a few grass huts where children poked their heads out to take a look at us.

It wasn’t the easiest hike, that’s for sure. But, the end result and the sights (like this) along the way? Totally worth it.
