RAD is in RwAnDa
- By law, one day out of every month, all citizens of Rwanda must clean the streets, land and buildings. It's called Umuganda - a community service day. How cool is that?! That's why the streets here are really clean and free from litter. For some reason, I can't picture the USA or NYC, for that matter, creating a law like that. However, I'd love to see Donald Trump taking out the trash!
- Women and men here love their Curves...from the hilly, winding roads to the female form. At the markets, one can buy a "buttock-enhancing pad" which one wears underneath clothing. I'm going to check it out...(photos to follow)
- The annual Project Rwanda Wooden Bike Classic starting on Aug 29. The WBC is a multi-day, multi-bike festival in which traditional wooden coffee bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes, single speeds race to win various prizes. Those wishing to compete as a group, there is a Corporate Cup as well, which is open to any corporation, NGO, embassy or organization. This race is destined to be "The New Tour de France"!
