A Semester in Rwanda


I just wanted to post some pictures of KIST where I'm working. 

I walk from home, about 20 minutes away. The way is hilly. Very hilly. Once on campus, there are paths but there are more 'desire' paths -- basically dirt paths through the grass. A bunch of guys were cutting the fields with machetes last week and now it looks less wild:

And, from the other side, KIST 4 and KIST 3 look quite urban:

And my sole source of electricity and internet in my office. It seems to go on and off depending on whether a student in a nearby lab flips a switch or if a circuit breaker trips.
