Kolwezi, encore, 2

I thought I would continue to share pics of our trips. They are not the best in the world (I’m not my Liz), but it will give you a feel for the land and the people.

Perhaps the most typical sight in the Congo: the line of people waiting to fill up their bidons with water. In most places there is no running water–so they get water wherever they can find it. In the cities, they go to the nearest water tap, stand in line, and then fill-up one day’s worth of water–to be repeated every day by every family.

Pretty typical: they don’t have the tools or the material to attach the metal roof to their home–so they hold it down with stones.
