Our trip started with a day spent in Toronto saying goodbye and spending time with family. Knowing that our flight left at 1030 at night we tried to pace ourselves during the day.
We arrived at the airport in plenty of time and we're able to use the lounge for a couple of hours. We were well rested and hoping to be tired enough to sleep on the plane.
The flight was long and uneventful, arriving in Istanbul some 9 hours later. We had a 2 hour stopover so we found the lounge again and tried to stay awake...
We had another uneventful flight to Kigali and arrived 6 and a half hours later. We were exhausted having been awake for 36 hours or so and we were very glad to be met by our guide and taken to our hotel.
We spent the rest of that day asleep. We got up for supper and went to a local restaurant where we saw the sun setting while we ate alfresco and sampled a number of African dishes, including Sabaza (deep fried mini fish) and even goat.
