The little things of my country


Rwanda Nziza

Gihugu cyacu,

Rwanda my country.

There are those little things that make me feel nice inside about being Rwandan or living in Rwanda, the little time I spend there.

1. Banana juice. ( umutobe) All the benefits of a banana in juice.

2. Fanta Citron. ( need I say more)

3. Agatogo….

And let me stop there as I might not want you to think of me as a foodie, even though I might me…. Or not..

Then there is the people. My very hospitable people.

One thing that I know about Rwandans is that family is very important. Family and neighbors..

The best is seen during weddings. Weddings are a family affair.

Whether the people have money or not, they will come ” gutwerera” this is to give a gift.

This can be in form of monetary but the best are the ones that just come and help you out in the house, help you make tea/porridge , rent you their bassin…just simply anything and everything to make things go smoothly.

This is also seen in times of mourning.

( I recently lost my grandma, on 8th of March, may her soul rest in peace. She was 96 years old and had great great grandchildren. She lived well….. She died peacefully. Rest in peace grandma)

Anyway, so there past few weeks I have been seeing how the community comes together to comfort you in your lowest time.

I thank God who chose me to be Rwandan.

And the greetings on the streets. They take you out of your thoughts.

How precious is life.
