Wednesday morning we met the Bishop at his office to wrap up the trip, and then after a brief wait for a tire change and fuel-up, we were on the long road to Bujumbura.
The big capital city with its traffic was a stark contrast to the villages we had seen so much of over the previous several days, and even to the larger town of Ngozi where we had been staying. We had a lovely lunch by the shore of Lake Tanganyika. Fortunately there was no sign of Gustave, though we did see some of his relatives later at the local zoo.
Finally, just as the sun was going down, we made our way to the airport to begin our series of flights home. We left with many beautiful memories of a stunning countryside, beautiful and hard-working people, and a Church with a vibrant and joyful faith.
