Here is a picture at the "Beach" there is no beach ! They are being loaded by the thousands on to the huge ferry!This picture of the ferry crossing is filled with people from the DRC who have been evicted from Brazzaville Congo. It is so interesting that the people of these two countries only a river dividing them do not get along and theirs is a history of wars. These people have been living in Brazzaville for years and now are being kicked out leaving their homes and jobs and are being sent to DRC.
Here is the skyline of Kinshasa from the boat on the Congo. Sorry it's so light!
Here is the view of Brazzaville the capital of Republic of Congo and the headquarters of the new mission from the boat. The big round tower is Brazzaville focal point. I will miss crossing this river.
Further down the river near a town called Matadi the rapids are huge on the river. They could really cash in on the white river rafting rides if their weren't so afraid of the water! These pictures were taken from the little Indiana Jones airplane! What an adventure!!
We crossed the river this morning and I took some more pictures. Here is the "Beach" on the Kinshasa side
Here is a better picture of the skyline on the Kinshasa side
