In April we moved back to Burundi for my husband’s research. We spend quite a bit of time in Gitega where Youth for Christ runs a kids home and a school. Every couple weeks we hop on the motorcycle and drive the three hours from Bujumbura to Gitega and stay at this paradisiacal place. Most people think Burundi looks like a combination of Hawaii and Cambodia – especially with the tea fields! But Burundi has its own unique character which keeps drawing us back year after year with its red dirt and eucalyptus trees and hospitable people. Enjoy some shots of Gitega and Homes of Hope.
