Heading to Rwanda

How would you like to accompany me on a trip to a tea plantation in Rwanda? We’re a three-hour drive north of Kigali. Before reaching the Sorwathe plantation, situated on the high plateau, we will travel for miles along a stunning valley covered with tea plants.

The road resembles a long scar. In the evening light, this gash of earth turns shades of blood red.
