Many of my friends from Kampala have always talked about Kigali, highlighting it's beautiful nature, vibrant nightlife and last but not least, beautiful women. Reputationally Rwanda has always been coloured by the genocide of 1994, the slaughter of approximately one million Tutsi by Hutu militias. As many other cities around the world that have faced extreme attrocities, Kigali rebuilt itself and is once again a pulsating cultural hub in East Africa.
I haven't been back to Uganda in about 5 years, lost in the wanderlust and affordable forms of transportation in Europe, I filled my time exploring the cultural diversity nearby. Uganda is developing at such a rate that you're shocked by all the new malls, buildings and ideas that have sprouted since your last visit. After so long, it will be interesting to see what feels more like home, Amsterdam or Kampala. I can't wait till the humid Ugandan air floods the cabin when the planes doors open at Entebbe airport!
