Rwanda is not a country many people know too much about. Infamous world wide for it’s somewhat recent genocide, and famous as home to some of the last wild mountain gorillas on Earth. Most couldn’t tell you much more, but as always I had one burning question… “What kind of beer do they drink?” Armed with a fistful of Francs and a thirst, I decided to find out.
Kigali is often looked up to in Africa as a shining star of progress, and it’s easy to see why. Just 20 years after a devastating genocide took place here, the city has advanced far beyond its neighbours. There are paved roads, ATMs, a ban on plastic bags and even motorbike taxis who are registered, have well maintained bikes, don’t overload and carry passenger helmets.
