Blog, News

After buckling our bags (yes, it is already the last day in Butare), we take the road for Nyanza where the group separates once again. We follow a veterinarian who goes by the name of Félicien whilst the others will provide assistance on a deworming campaign. Félicien, his large white coat, and material, embark on his motorbike.
