P&P in Rwanda :)

This will be a short post about expectations, assumptions and surprises. 🙂 One day in June, just before my departure for Pulse, Petra said she would visit me in Rwanda. At first I thought it is one of those things people say when somebody is going away for some time. Therefore, honestly speaking I didn’t […]


SCH, MP and DHL already know the below story but I would like to share it with all of you. Just before I left for my Pulse assignment European SCH raised some money and… books for children in Rwanda (e.g. world atlas, novels for younger and older, short stories written by kids from one London’s […]

An elephant never forgets…

A visit to Kigali Memorial Center. Calling the world. Apparently the line was busy… An elephant never forgets… Let’s hope today everybody has a memory like an elephant…

Yes, that’s a word in Kinyarwanda! Anyone would like to guess what it means? Let me help you by saying that more common version is: “mwaramutse “. Does it ring a bell now? Still nothing? Well, don’t worry, it’s ok to be umuzungu and we have 6 months to learn 😉 First of all, thank […]

A thousand hills

Hello! If you are reading this post, it means that my PULSE assignment has been confirmed! I’m extremely excited and to be honest… it’s really hard to find the right words to define feelings, hopes and expectations. Maybe that’s part of the challenge? 😉 Somehow I still can’t believe this is happening! Therefore I would […]
