Today was a good day.
I haven't been thinking that a lot, here. Nothing bad has happened to me in Kinshasa, but I haven't really fallen in love with it, either.
But today? Good day.
I got to sleep half an hour longer (good). Then went with the team to breakfast at the one French patisserie downtown. I went there on the last trip, but that was for lunch and it was crowded. Breakfast is better. Leisurely breakfast, with coffee and conversation: good!
(Most mornings I've been skipping breakfast, because the hotel charges $30 for the breakfast buffet. Also skipping lunch a lot. I bought a couple of 400-gram bags of peanut M&Ms, and have been surviving until dinnertime by snacking on them. Yeah, I know.)
Long-time readers may recall that on these trips, we usually have a half-day free on the first weekend to do something interesting. This time, we decided to visit a bonobo rehabilitation place about an hour outside Kinshasa.
It was awesome.
