Photos of Mwene Ditu

Wahsing Machine: the sisters boil their clothes, sheets and hospital linens in a large barrel before pounding them on two large stone bassins and hanging them out to dry

Sorting Pondu: Three teenagers help out at the convent by sorting dried pondu (manioc) leaves.

Small Plane: this is a small 7-seater plane that we were lucky enough to be able to board. We didn't have to go to the large N'djili airport, which made the trip about 90% more pleasant.

Sisters Enroll: sisters in Mwene Ditu just came back from getting enrolled, showing their ink blackened finger with pride

Nice pics. Please keep'em coming.


Video blogging is BEST done with at least a cable modem. (What do you use? A satellite link?)

Personally, I would not try it with less than 1Gbyte RAM though it may be possible with 512Mbyte.
