Living in Town

Living in Town, Kigali

Town is not really a place you live actually. It consists of the Union Trade Center (UTC), the banks (Ecobank, Bank of Kigali, Fina and a bunch more), a few government buildings, and it ends up by Serena Hotel. There are plenty of small shops, alimentations, and coffee shops, as well as some health clinics and a big university hospital.  Some houses are for residential use, but I’ve yet to meet someone who lives in town. Maybe they’re all hiding… Or maybe there’s a secret underground network of tunnels beneath us, through which the town-habitats are walking every day, while the rest of us are still blissfully unaware of this pollution-free way of getting around Kigali. I mean, I’m just saying.
