Bujumbura

I had to attend a workshop in Burundi, and flew there by Ethiopian Airways. I knew little about the country , not even the kind of currency. So, it was a pleasant surprise to find how green the city is, and its situation on Lake Tanganyika added to my enjoyment. It is a very small country and the city too is small. Signs of poverty are obvious with beggars plentiful, but the place is clean with none of the plastic bags and litter associated with a high-consumer society.
Reading other people's comments about Burundi, I saw mentions of security being a problem, but there was nothing at all mentioned to warn us that security was an issue.
