In an earlier video (https://youtu.be/fOUrEYbQbXU), I talked about Congo being a cash only country. So what can happen if you have no way to prove payment for services or goods? Yep, you can be take advantage of. I think that's why I don't my passport and visa to date. #Congo #cash #problems
I have never had malaria in Congo which is a malaria endemic country. Thousands of children for annually and millions of adults are sick from malaria. I grateful for the preventative measures I use. One, I sleep under an insecticide treated bed net. Two, I take an anti-malaria medicine (Doxycycline) daily. And three, I used mosquito repent at night while sitting around. As I prepare for shooting this video, Bowayi, a Congolese friend stopped by and brought me some raw peanuts and fresh corn. I'm grateful!
Update from the Kananga. I recap the highs and LOWS of the week. The pastor at church asked where I had been the last 2-3 Sundays. Tuesday, I paid Immigration $100 for another letter to explain they had my passport. Wednesday, another thief from the house. Thursday and Friday, I was on stakeout at the house when on the thief to return. Saturday, we went to a local restaurant for river fish of the day.
