Carolyn's Journey to Rwanda

Current Location

Hello! My name is Carolyn, and I am a researcher in Musanze, Rwanda, a base for gorilla tourism and research. Join me as I trek around Volcanoes National Park and explore Rwandan culture.


Rwanda is a very small country (about the size of Massachussetts) in East Africa. Also known as the "Land of a Thousand Hills," Rwanda offers many breath-taking landscapes. Come learn more about it!


Knowing how to integrate into your local community is the most important aspect of living abroad. The best reward to opening yourself to new experiences is the connections you make with new people.

Field Notes

Many people are curious about Rwandan cuisine. Rwandans usually make food with whatever is available, making the cuisine hard to define, but I tell people it is always delicious!
