1.000 Reasons Save Virunga: #28 “Chez Pierre”

Excerpt from the Blog Chez Pierre >>  Zaire (R.D. Congo) (1990-1991)


Congo : 1990, my first job abroad ! Jambo Bwana ! After one year of preparation ( during my last year of College ), I had been selected to go teach in Goma, Zaire ( now “République Démocratique du Congo” ).

A beautiful country…

Nicknamed the “Grenier du Zaïre” (Zaire’s Attic) since everything grows there without problem, food is cheap and abundant. I often took my “beau tracteur rouge” (my Jeep) to go see the wildlife, fish, or visit the gorillas in the hills of Djomba.
