There's no hidden meaning in the title. Just laying it right out for you as I saw it. One moment, you're riding shotgun on a 3-hour ride from Kigali (Rwanda) to the border crossing in Gisenyi to get to the DRC, and the next you look out the window to see equal number of humans and goats on a motorbike. The laws of practicality are ever present.
As Rwanda is known as the land of one-thousand hills, it's a fairly nice drive out to the border. You wind your way through towns and speed traps, across sweeping hilltops and valleys and through a good chunk of farm land mixed in for good measure. All in all, a rather uneventful road trip to the border. Then again, it's almost always easier to leave a country than to enter it.
