DAY TWENTY Linda and I got up at 6:00 and went down to the river for a bath.
We left the camp and drove into Rutshuru where we dropped Fran¹ off. She caught a Matatu (literally “one more”) down to Goma on her way back to Nairobi. The three missing kiwis turned up just as we were about to leave and would have come with us but they wanted to see the gorillas so they will meet us in Kisangani. We have a long way to go to get there, so we drove all day and camped the night in a hill-top quarry.
¹ Fran, and Australian girl, had come on the first two weeks of the trip in order to see the mountain gorillas. She now had to return alone to Nairobi to catch a flight back to Australia.
