We Visit Rwanda
The first thing many people think about when they think about Rwanda is the tragedy endured by its people in 1994. Yet this African nation is so much more than that. Located near the equator, its mountains keep much of it cool. Warm temperatures and steady rain help farmers produce bananas. And hidden in forests 10,000 feet above sea level are mountain gorillas, shy vegetarians that attract thousands of visitors from across the globe. Despite its history, Rwanda is considered paradise by many.
