I drove around on a Monday to three popular sites: Zoo lake in Rosebank, the Union buildings and the Voortrekker monument in Pretoria. All of them were eerily quiet. I took these pictures.

Sorry. It seems that’s what most people want to see 🙂 I’ve got to give the people what they want 🙂 This is also the river loop!
People only want sunset pictures 🙂 The Kinshasa river loop is a popular spot to park and chill, to walk, to skateboard, to rollerblade, to run, to blast music, to play football (soccer). You bump into everyone 🙂

Others are from Mon Béguin another rooftop bar in Gombe (with a yellow sunset) There’s also a picture of a colourful weird… Continue reading More photos of Kinshasa and surroundings
I went for a walk🚶♂️ today. Gombe before sunset is a chaos of speeding cars. Police and random people standing outside properties staring at the silly white guy walking around with his earphones. "On fait tâche" The streets are clean enough. Sidewalks are littered with plastics. Public spaces aren't cleaned. People waiting for buses. Some… Continue reading A walk around Gombe

More photos of Kinshasa during the curfew/Covid… Things haven’t changed much. Just masks, get home before 9pm. Parties start earlier now. Bars and restaurants are changing their hours. No one wants to sit at home. A Tembo beer at the Colibri bar (one of the oldest bars in Kinshasa from the 1950s) View of the… Continue reading More photos of Kinshasa during Covid
