Pink Floyd and 24 Novembre As the hawkers pass by And the motorbikes zip pass As the kids laugh and joke As the taxi drivers say “Lemba Lemba” As the dust flies over your face As the smoke enters your lungs Pink Floyd soothes your ears, heart and mind The Great Gig In The Sky Live at Knebworth 1990

A walk on the Kinshasa golf course
What is dating like in Kinshasa, where there are expat girls who are only here for a few years or months?
Today I got stopped by the Police while on my motorcycle. They had no uniforms. Motorcycle ride on the main boulevard (Boulevard du 30 Juin) The supposed cop walked up to my motorcycle and just removed the keys. Motorcycles are not allowed in Gombe apparently but they’re everywhere. I am one of the few with… Continue reading Motorcycle adventures in Kinshasa
A description of a typical drive through Kinshasa
Moto taxis in Kinshasa. Love them or hate them, you will never sit in traffic again or you’ll die!
Landing at the Kinshasa airport, an experience I landed in the Kinshasa International or Ndjili airport at 10pm on a Turkish airlines flight on a Sunday night. This is what you can expect.

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
A short history of Congolese (DRC) music with a few classic tracks
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
