Ashley Thompson: Journey to Rwanda a wondrous experience for UTEP student

Full story: El Paso Times

The smell of bananas sitting out in the hot sun for hours at a time; the sounds of nature masked by the hustle and bustle of the city; the sights of people just trying to make it through the day-to-day; all were all part of my Rwandan reality.

Wonderful story. I really like your writing style. Descriptive and blunt that reflects what feels like a very grounded writer that exudes character. I truly look forward to your next article!

I rememeber in 1994 the place was not very pleasent place. It was the place of the worst case of genocidal atrocities since Vietnam. Have fun!
