When you are out there. When you are really out in a place where nobody knows you. Where you know nobody. That is when travel gets to be a test of your mettle. When being way out there means that nobody cares.
You are in a place where murder and sexual assault are daily events. And people are casual about life. They have seen war and all the shit that is part of that. So then, what do you do?
You write this and just carry on.

About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."


The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.


The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
