NAIROBI Lions Taylor Decker Jersey , June 19 (Xinhua) -- My journey to Rwanda began well before my arrival in the country, online.

I filed my application on the website of the Directorate General of Immigration and Emigration (DGIE) on a Tuesday, and received almost immediate confirmation that it would be processed within three days.

By Friday evening, however, the tracking page still said the status of my application was pending.

I was forced to put off my flight scheduled for Saturday.

Meanwhile, I also sought help from the live-chat section on Irembo, the country's e-government portal. Irembo means "gateway" in the local Kinyarwanda language.

My helper online, called Neza Lions Da'Shawn Hand Jersey , told me to "kindly contact" the immigration authorities at the three email addresses listed on the DGIE website.

It was on the seventh day after my submission that a notice of approval was emailed to me.

My trip to Rwanda was off to a somewhat disappointing start, or at least not as smooth as initially expected.

After a full nine days in Rwanda, however, I have come to realize that my experience with the online visa application process was just a minor hiccup as the country is striving to leave behind its tragic past.

I have also come to appreciate the optimism and confidence in the country's future among many Rwandans and foreigners.


Twenty-three years ago, Rwanda experienced one of the darkest chapters in human history. More than 1 million Tutsis and moderate Hutus were massacred within 100 days.

"Rwanda is a country of hills, mountains, forests, laughing children Lions Tracy Walker Jersey , markets of busy people, drummers, dancers, artisans and craftsman," reads a plaque at the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center.

"We manage to squeeze thousands of hills and eight million people into our 26,338 square kilometers. Our land is rich and fertile, the climate pleasant.

"This has been our home for centuries. We are one people. We speak one language. We have one history.
