After a week in Kinshasa, we moved on to Goma for the rest of the trip.
Knowing that there were going to be long days and nights of work for the coming weeks, we went to the Lake Kivu Serena Hotel in Gisenyi, Rwanda, for their Sunday brunch.
As before, we walked across to the border, and then a 20-minute leisurely walk to the hotel. We enjoyed brunch, a continental breakfast, including made to order omelettes, crepes, local dishes such as mutoke, tilapia, and a variety of juices – try the tamarind juice it was a nice blend of tangy and sweet – and a complimentary glass of champagne at the end!
The carved watermelon was what drew me to this table … and only realized later that the turtle and crocodile? were actually baked bread! The boys wanted to know why they would make bread animals; they weren’t going to eat that, they said lol
