Hello all, welcome to our summer trip blog from Rwanda! 4 of us caught a very early flight from Heathrow on Monday and arrived in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda in the evening. Most of us thought the 10-hour flight, with a connection at Brussels, was very good – apart from Yuchen who missed the croissant for breakfast and the ice cream for the snack, which apparently “were the most important meals of the day”.
Joining the other 4 team members already on the ground, we have so far made a good start to the battery box manufacture today. We spent most of the day at Kigali Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) figuring out if our plan in London was the best way for the production. We managed to assemble 40 of our boxes in the afternoon – and we went to have very nice pizzas for dinner. The highlight included Rushabh’s unusually steamy lasagne and Leo’s dessert, a nutella pizza, which of course was an important part of his daily calcium intake!
