First visit: March 2007
Subsequent visit: June 2007
Visited: Bujumbura, Gitenga
I still can't believe I have been to Burundi twice, and the second time for almost a week. There are no tourists here after 30 years of civil war, but there are UN troops which mean eateries and bars for the foreigners. Bujumbura is a loss of a place apart from the bit on Lake Tangyaniyka, where a nice resort-style row of hotels and restaurants is being developed. A ride to Gitenga is fascinating to see how people live in this day and age...
Highlight: The road to Gitenga for a true ride in the heart of Africa.
