Heart of Darkness: Displaced in the Democratic Republic of Congo
After being here for 3 days, ive decided that it's best that i go back to Rwanda. I dont feel like i have a good enough infrastructure to support myself with. Congo is expensive and i can't justify spending money on things other than those that benefit HALO, Cornerstone, or Cameras for Children. It's a bit frustrating to me, because i feel like the people here deserve more of my time and efforts, but the bottom line is that i can't stay. i don't speak Swahili or French, and hardly anyone here speaks English. i will return to Congo at a later date. maybe in a year. maybe in five. i don't really know, but i will return.
Here is a slideshow of images from my time in in congo. Heart of Darkness: Displaced in DRC
