  1. Oddfeel, you have no idea how valuable your coverage from DCR is, as almost nobody goes there. So if you can/want, please don't hold back in sharing whatever you find. Posted one year ago
    1. "as almost nobody goes there" ???????????????? I got the message and thanks a lot for your support! Posted one year ago
      1. I mean to say it's hardly visited by foreigners because of security issues. A lot of people want to visit but are scared and every government recommends against visiting. Posted one year ago
        1. I know and you are right! such a crazy place! but in fact my comment has been modified it was supposedly having "laughing" smileys instead of the question marks...so of course the message is not the same haha sorry for that :p Posted one year ago
          1. No worries :)

            I'm interested in the reality on the ground there, you live in a secure/safe area?

            1. because I am a badass I should say "no" (just kidding haha) nothing is really safe here and I am just talking about disease...even more nowadays with the Chinese people invading the country (yes the 2019-nCoV has its repercussions even here in DRC). Added to it, corrupted police, politicians, soldiers etc etc...so on a daily basis (if you understood how to behave) it can be ok to kind of live normally here, but be ready it can take fire tomorrow...

                1. you know I am not living in DRC all year long. I am working on a shift of 8 weeks in the country and then 8 weeks at home...pretty good rhythm that gives me 6 months/year enjoying my people... :p Posted one year ago
