Great Dpbours 2007-10-31 5:41

Hi Frank,

Good story you have written there and quite truly your comment on basic not applicable everywhere. Well, Congo is a good example of the non-applicability of basics. Good story afterwards, but even better not to end up in such a story at all.
Why 'Highway to hell'? What is the direction we are looking at? He seems to go with the flow, which could only be North-Western to the sea - which is the highway out of hell then, coming from Eastern Congo.

Default To Dpbours: Counter flow

Thanks for your comments.
In fact it's about ten minuts later that this happened and the arbourt is just after this curve. The Alima river is an affluent of the Congo river and in this case we were(The man and our canoe)at counter streem going back to the problems.
For the final story, and after 1 year in this country, if you keep care of your manners and avoid big lenses in the sensitive areas, Congo can be an paradise for shooting in peace ^^

Hahaha, shooting in peace... Good sense of humour.

I worked on the border of Congo and Angola - in Angola, Zaire province. That's already some time ago, but I really appreciated the people there and the funny Kikongo language.

Greetz, Dennis
