Rode a motorcycle-taxi for the first time on my own.  For some reason, motos are one of my favorite things to do in Kigali.  You put on a helmet worn by who knows how many people before you and hop on a motorcycle with a local driver.  Then hold on tightly to part of the seat behind you, while the driver weaves in and out of traffic on the hilly streets of Kigali.  Epcot should seriously consider making a moto simulation ride for their African section of the park. 

Last week I was riding a moto that was supposed to be following someone else, but it ran out of gas in the middle of the road. After the 5th time the driver (while in the middle of the busy road) laid the bike on it's side and jiggled it around by the handles, it finally started up again.  We made it to a gas station, where he put in exactly one pump-squeeze of gas and were on our way again.
