On our last day in Rwanda, everyone on the team decided to spend the last day relaxing before we had to travel back to campus. In the morning, we enjoyed our last breakfast buffet at the hotel by the pool and ate toast, eggs, potatoes, and various tropical fruits.
After breakfast, several students went back to the craft market to purchase a few more souvenirs for family and friends back home. Those of us that stayed behind spent the remaining time outside soaking in the last of the 80-degree weather.
The teams decided to take pictures on the playground before we finished packing up to leave. Each team posed with their favorite playground equipment.
After we left the hotel, we spent the remaining part of the day at the airport until we could leave for campus. We were able to bring all of the water samples and field equipment back with us, but we had to show the airport security the letters of permission. The security officers even used a german shepherd security dog to sniff our bags to make sure they were safe to bring on the plane. After we made it through security, we sat in the waiting area before we were able to board the plane and depart for Nairobi, Kenya.
