As most of you likely know, I recently traveled to Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (known as Zaire from 1971 – 1997 and being the former Belgian Congo). This trip was for work for provide the 4th (almost) annual CCDC workshop at the University of Kinshasa. While I was quite anxious about the trip, it was really an incredible experience and would go again in a second (assuming the country doesn’t destabilize significantly). It was amazing to see what the students and faculty make do with in terms of resources. The people were wonderful as well (though I wish I had learned more than my 10 words of French beforehand). I did post a (lengthy) Trip Report and a bunch of Photos.
