Hôtel des Milles Collines
After lunch, we spent a relaxing afternoon at the Hôtel des Milles Collines in Kigali, where the film Hôtel Rwanda was shot. It is in a lovely setting on one of the hills around Kigali.
Some of us sat by the poolside ...
... while others went for a swim.
The water was apparently a little on the cool side, but it was lovely and warm in the sun.
