Happened to make my way to eastern Rwanda. But before we talk about that I need to tell you that I have never seen a more significant difference between two places as I did see when moving from the eastern Congo into Rwanda.

Seems pretty neutral, but I can say that the chaos on the left side is way more significant than on the right side.

Well folks, the two-month delay between the last photos that made it to this site and now says this: it is damned difficult to upload photos in Africa. Still, I will keep trying.

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.
