There was a costume party in Nyanza the weekend of March 12th. Well, in truth it was called a "Fancy Dress" party, but I'm told it means the same thing.
Nyanza is about 2 hours drive west and then south from Kigali. It was once home to the ruling royal family and so capital of the country, but today is just another stop on the way to bustling Butare. The town is a nice size, with ashpalt roads, a sizeable market, many many schools, and a few bars. It struck me as very green and peaceful. There has been talk of me doing some work in a few of it's schools. We shall see.
