The journey was good, i love scenaries so i had the best view from my window...many hills, i wondered where the 9 million ppl lived, the hills were disserted... approaching the city was the best!! the good view, since we were on the hills and BJ is down, the beautifull lake, the rich green extension, SO beautiful.
Got to the city, and to the room we were to sleep in,...clubbed that night , and the next night, (mind you we had clubbed in Kigali the night before we travelled)...
Ppl in BJ are very friendly, though they are more of hustlers compared to their Rwandese neighbours.
Sth interesting, where we were staying , was near the lake (but more of the fishing part of the lake) in the evening, a hippo was out of the lake , and it was not a big deal to the locals, they were doing things like they had not seen the hippo!!!...
All in all it was a nice experience, nice place to be, stuff in the markets were relatively cheaper than Rwanda...Congo is a stone throw away, so GOLD is not so rare...
