      1. Wow, that is not a place many people go to. You say that you live in West Africa - there? What do you do there, if I may ask? Posted one year ago
        1. Well yes sorry, my bio is a bit out of date, I was still in Ivory Coast two years ish ago, now I am living in DRC, I have been living in several African countries (Gabon, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Congo etc) I am parachutist vet (French army) now working as emergency nurse (specialised in medical evacuation, travel insurance and medical coverage for various events)..that could explain why I am living or working in such places :p

          1. Wow, what an amazing job, and it certainly gets you around a bit.
            My dream has always been to go to the Congo, but it never seems to happen. I did actually organise something 10 years ago for my 50th birthday, but it all went tits up over there and had to cancel. Not a place I would like to travel to alone, but one day I shall get there!
            Looking forward to more interesting photos from you!
