When it Was Still Leopoldville

Take a look at these beautiful pictures from Kinshasa, a link from Congo Girl's website, back when it was still called Leopoldville.

Wow... it looks so... modern! I know I shouldn't think this way, but I always assume DRC was 'dans la brousse'. I guess if Tana can look like a real city, then so would Kinshasa. Uh.

Actually, the roads in the pics are so nice and clean. There positively swiss cheese like now (full of holes everywhere). The capital is OK, the rest of the country (and its a big country) is pretty much "la brousse"
