    ... the ground local knowledge. Regardless. What really made my day was visiting what turned out to be a nursery school using the filter AND stove, aka a bunch of PRECIOUS little kiddies all drinking clean water and not breathing in the equivalent of two packs of cigarettes per day in cook stove ashes. Pretty great way to cover that under five mortality rate! The kids were just thrilled to see us, and there were maybe three dozen clean cups lined up next to the Tubeho Neza Lifestraw. ...

    ... There was no use in trying to talk much. It was just too unpleasant to carry on an enjoyable conversation. Ugh!

    When we finally got to the village, several people were standing in front of the hall. I recognized Nathan, the local elder who serves the three congregations in the sector of Buseruko.

    ... kinds of plantations. Leopold called an intervention when half way through the journey I asked if the fields to the left of us were tea and he exclaimed ‘But Caroline! Of course it’s tea.

    Last Tuesday was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip so far! Fiji was fun, West Coast Trail was awesome and Karen's Cottage very cool. But seeing Gorillas in the wild is absolutely amazing! We are still now, days later, pinching ourselves over how incredible it was.

    The setting was Kahuzi Biega National Park, located about an hours’ drive (40km) from Bukavu. We set out around 7am with a friend Katherine, who is here for 2 months conducting ...
