Dubai to Rwanda

Today was all about movement from Dubai to Rwanda to photograph the Mountain Gorillas. Following a ticketing process at Ethiopian Airlines that was some of the most disorganized processing that I have ever seen, we were finally on our way to Addis Abba and then onward to Kigali Rwanda for our first overnight in Rwanda. Arriving at noon-ish in Kigali, we were met by the wonderful staff of Thousands Hills and quickly transferred to the Serena Hotel. Our final member of our team joined us about 8pm for a light snack then off the bed for our early rise the following morning. During our travel to Rwanda, we found ourselves reflecting on the fireworks that we had just witnessed and the great architecture that has captured my eye every time I visit Dubai and I just had to share some Dubai images before moving on to Rwanda.
