After the long yet enjoyable journey, we just got to sleep for around 6 hours (no worries, its part of the experience!!), because we had to be there for breakfast at the convent canteen exactly at 8 am. In spite of not getting enough sleep, everyone was on time for breakfast and were pretty excited about their first day in Rwanda. There were other people at the table too, who came from a service. We were served bread slices, omelet, tea and coffee for breakfast. We also ordered a few bottles of water, and then had a hard time figuring out how to pay for them since 1 USD = 600 RWF, and one bottle was 300 RWF, and all of us had notes of 2000s and 5000s.

After breakfast, we called Jimmy to get us cabs since we had to meet with the OLPC group to discuss the timing of the workshops and the lesson plans for Scratch and Tam Tam. The cabs arrived in around 10-15 minutes, and we got out of our rooms. That was the first time we got to see the convent from outside (since it was dark when we arrived at the convent the day before) and it looked amazing with all the greenery around (pictures will be posted soon!! :D). The weather here is pretty good too.

So we got into our cabs, and headed to the World Relief center where we got to meet with the OLPC members.
