After an eventful weekend in downtown Rubavu, I came to Nyamyumba Sector for the much-needed rest. Upon arrival, I checked into La Bella Resort. Then I had dinner and went straight to bed.
Earlier this morning, I woke up to the sounds of Lake Kivu’s gentle waves and those singing birds I always write about. After a 3-km run, I took a shower and occupied my favorite table in the garden. It is at the said table where this post is being written.
While having breakfast, I am joined by the owner of this property. She is here to give me a detailed account of her journey as an entrepreneur. This investor’s inspiring journey will be published tomorrow right here. Book your seat.
I prepared my own breakfast because I am not a guest here. I am at home. As satisfying as my most important meal of the day is, La Bella’s chef has given me a D. Next time, a cooking lesson will be incorporated into my itinerary.
Back to the garden, I can’t stop marveling at the lake and its stunning islands. The sight of Akeza Island will make you yearn for a tropical getaway. Farther ahead, Kabakingi Island looks like a floating garden. On the other side, Akarwa k’Abakobwa (girls’ islet) is a heap of rocks, partially submerged in the water.
I am impressed by the transformation of this suburb into a tourism hotspot. Over the course of this week, I will be sharing my experiences in Nyamyumba and other parts of Rubavu District.
