Work in Lubumbashi

There is a lot of work being done in Lubumbashi right now: several new, large, buildings are being built, and ditches are being dug everywhere.

All of these ditches are being dug by hand, and many are as deep as a man stands!

I was told (but don’t know for sure) that they are laying new fiber-optic cable in the city… I find that hard to believe, since they have such a hard time providing basic water and power.
