Dealing with homesickness in Rwanda

Hello everyone,

Being an expat in Rwanda can turn out to be a wonderful human, social or professional adventure... with potential moments of nostalgia and homesickness along the way.

What are your personal tips to prevent homesickness?

How do you deal with such feelings?

Are there shops or stores offering products from your home country in Rwanda? Or maybe venues with music and ambiance from your homeland?

Thanks for sharing your experience,


Deqr Priscilla? Are you presently in Rwanda?
