I might have the opportunity to visit Rwanda later this year! It will be as part of a group of girl guides who will be undertaking some projects on preventing violence but I'm sure we will have time to do trips around the country as well. We will be staying in Kigali.

So has anyone ever been to Kigali or Rwanda and would you have any tips on what I should or shouldn't do whilst I'm there? Did you feel safe there? Were there any local customs you wish you knew before you went? And which currency did you find easiest to use (Rwandan francs versus US dollars)?

Looking forward to hearing your stories and tips.
