I thoroughly enjoyed our three days visiting with Edwin's friends and relatives on his mom's side. Everyone Edwin is associated with confirmed all my thoughts and impressions about the country, Rwanda, the people of Uganda, and Edwin's life in general. Jolly's friends and family are all about love!
The first time I met Edwin, I was impressed with him. He has a gentle, sweet face and a genuinely calm, accepting disposition. I know this young man is going to do amazing things in his life. I can't wait to witness all he will accomplish for people and animals. He loves both humans and animals. He has dedicated his life to saving both. For me, that was absolutely evident when I learned how he not only saved the gorillas from being poached, but also was thoughtful enough to consider the plight of the poachers whose lives he has changed. The Gorilla Guardian Village was Edwin's means of honoring and enriching the lives of both the gorillas and the poachers.
Below are several photos Edwin took while we were in Uganda. He's a far better photographer than I am. Too, unlike my camera, Edwin has a "serious" camera.
