This is the “Land of a Thousand Hills” afterall

Start counting now…
This is the question I have while sitting in the capitol of Rwanda, the “land of a thousand hills”: how many hills are there in Kigali itself? To answer this question, I’m looking to Johnny and Patrick, two Kigali businessmen who should know exactly how many hills are in Kigali – and be able to name them all too.

If you, like I wonder if they have the answer, watch and learn:

Well there is our answer, in due time. There are 11 hills in Kigali, or 1/100th of the total assumed hills in the country. Now the country is not that big, and Kigali is a spread-out city, but 11 hills is a good number.

That’s 4 more than the 7 hills of Kampala and an unknown number more than the hills of San Francisco.
