For the past six days, we have covered hundreds of miles of Rwandan countryside visiting genocide memorial sites and NGOs that serve vulnerable populations still struggling to recover from the events of 1994. Everywhere we went we saw women laboring in farms and carrying mass amounts of their harvest in bags and baskets on their heads as they made the long walk to market. We saw men carrying huge bundles of grains, chickens and bananas on their bicycles. Intuitively, we new they were taking their goods to market. Today, we visited the market.
The fruits of the labor were on display. The aroma was earthy — spices, vegetables, beans, fish. It was beautiful to behold. And I felt a sense of closure after having watched such hard labor all week long.
