Democratic Republic of Congo Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I knew that I was probably having the best time of my life during those 3 years in Central Africa but, just in case, every once in a while as I walked down a street in Luanshya I would just laugh out loud and thank my lucky stars! In reality, life was not so bad for the Africans either - things were orderly and there was a great economy that kept things chugging along. This photo shows some Africans enjoying a slow 1973 ferry ride across the Luapula River on the Zaire-Zambia border. I wonder how they are doing now? Zambia's copper industry (and its economy has collapsed), AIDS is rampant in this part of Africa and I do not even want to think about what has happened to the people of Zaire. Something went badly off the rails somewhere.
