A blog about the DRC and me

Welcome! This is just another blog about someone in Congo. There are ideas and stories of my life in the DRC and elsewhere.

There is no particular objective. Just to share and express myself on the World Wide Web in a space that I call my own – photography, music, travel, ideas, experiences, information and anything else.

I’m a Canadian, Indian, Nicaraguan, French and Spanish speaking Congolese of sorts. Enjoy your visit 🙂
