The Twa, aka the Batwa, are a pygmy people who were the oldest

now live in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and the eastern portion of the
Democratic Republic of Congo. Thanks to the pottery they make and sell
in Kigali shops, they are able to built some big mud houses in many
It is funny to compare the Batwa who see really few tourists in rwanda, and the Surma from Ethiopia. Batwa were just happy to see foreigners visiting their village, Surma were making business!
