Fishermen in their dug-out canoes on a Sunday afternoon.
Sunset on the Congo River.
Ben and I walk/run along here everyday. It is guarded by machine guns! The Embassy Homes are along this part of the river, that is why it is safe to walk here. We have met many good friendly people from all over the world!!
The statue in the middle of the river is a warning marker of the upcoming rapids. No crocodiles in this part of the river, it flows to fast. The water is quite clear this day, usually there are large islands of grass that float down from the jungles over a thousand of miles upriver. No swimming here, it is too dangerous. Congolese don't swim anyway. Across the river is Brazzaville RC.
Here is a silly picture of me. Marie Lumu our Bishop's wife made me a Congolese dress. I am in our apartment. I think I look silly.
