We spend the night in a hotel in Butare, southern Rwanda. The owner is a belgian guy who was born there. He says that tourism is slowly picking up in the country of the thousands hills (indeed there are hills oll over the place here). We recieved confirmation about the safety in Burundi, but now learned that the road we wanted to take in Tanzania is not driveable because of the rainy season. If this is true we will have to make a detour of several hundred kilometers. Lets wait and see. We will decide in Kigoma. For the moment lets enjoy a good cigar, a whisky and the birthday cake of Michel, the hotel owner. Tomorrow we will get up at 6:30 to be at noon in Bujumbura and out of southern Burundi before the night falls.
