Kay was coming to visit me now that the meeting was over, and so we needed to get some produce with which to cook. Usually I get my produce in Kidaho, but that tends to consist of only tomatoes, onions, cabbage, and avocado if one lucky. Musanze had not yet been explored by Kay, so I took her to the Musanze vegetable market.
Since the vegetable marked in Musanze was as large as Nyanza’s only market (which sold everything, in addition to food), Kay was impressed by the size, and also by the selection and prices. The North of Rwanda is blessed with a bountiful selection, and you can often find amazing deals (three cabbages for one hundred francs- about sixteen cents!) We decided that a curry would be nice for dinner, so we wandered through the aisles grabbing whatever we thought would be good: green beans, cauliflower, green peppers, garlic, eggplant, peas, urusenda peppers, thai chili peppers, carrots, and rosemary. We would get onions and tomatoes in Kidaho. We left the market and got tickets for the bus back to Kidaho, and I left Kay to save my seat for a moment, ran into one of my favorite grocery stores in Musanze, and came out with pineapples and two cans of coconut milk- we were going to make an epic curry! As we rode back, we could practically taste it.
