Happy Birthday Ryan!!
Today was a big big day for our team. It seemed as though we all rose with the sun this morning and so we were able to all shower and relax on our balconies as we watched to city come alive. It still feels surreal that we are able to be here in this place, in this beautiful city.
|The Team with Mama Deborah|
After meeting with Mama Deborah we traveled to African Bite for Ryan's birthday lunch. We were again kindly greeted and choose our lunch from a delicious buffet of traditional Rwandan cuisine, and it was amazing, as all the food has been. After lunch we returned to the guest house for a quick freshen up and continued on our way to the Ubuzima AIDS organization.

|Hand rolled paper beads we helped make|
Never while we were creating beads did the thought occur to me that these people had AIDS. It was not until we were driving home that it hit me that we had just shared a unforgettable experience with some seriously sick individuals. But it did not matter, the spirit for life was still alive and flaming in these people, it did not matter their T-cell count or medical history all that mattered was that we were here together in the moment.
P.S. WE GOT THE MISSING LUGGAGE BACK!!! :)
