Really, really bad internet connection!

Our internet connection is getting worse and worse. At the moment I cannot send any messages with attachments, and just sending a regular message can take up to 15 minutes if it goes at all. Will not even attempt to post any more photos until this problem has cleared up! We are also moving office in the coming week, which means that we'll be without any internet at all for a few days.

Election campaigns are on again here - the second round presidential election will be held on October 29th, along with (I think) legislative elections. Or maybe it's provincial representatives....

Gorilla Photos!

Internet access is still poor, but I'm going to see if I can get at least one or two photos up today. The park where I went to see the gorillas is called Kahuzi-Biega, and if you Google it, you'll find out more information.

A Spot of Malaria

Little Miss "I never get malaria" finally came down with malaria... though it really wasn't bad, and after 3 days off work I'm back at my desk again. However internet access has still not improved.

For those of you with broadband access, go to and then below the peace signs click on the phrase: "Bekijk hier de live-uitzending von 21 september" and then you'll see a 45 minute video of our International Day of Peace event here in Congo. Enjoy!! (Hurry - I'm not sure that it'll be up on the site for much longer!)
