View of Rwanda from Republic of Congo (ex-Zaïre)

View of Rwanda from Republic of Congo (ex-Zaïre)
More fights, more disaster, more deaths, more famine, more displacement along the demarcation between Rwanda and Zaïre. Pic taken from the Park of Virunga.
Encore plus de luttes, de désastre, de morts, de misère le long de la frontière Congo ex-Zaïre et Rwanda près de Goma.

it has been like this for the last 15000 years, and it will not stop tomorrow. Bantu Africa is deeply divided among tribal lines, and there isn't a drop of compassion beyond the tribal radar screen.
Trying to change this here and now, with moderate and ethically acceptable means, will be elusive.

It is as tragical and sad as you can see. A tentative separation has been made by making Rwanda and Burundi (for the Tutsi) but that doesn't give the right to anybody to massacre the Tutsi that continued to live in Rwanda. Now the Tutsi try to go onto Congolese territory to settle by chasing and killing the ones who happen to be there.

La plupart de ces malheurs sont d'origine humaine et cela les rend plus pénible à supporter.

Tu as raison. Si les meilleurs survivent ce ne serait pas mal. Malheureusement rien ne laisse penser à cela dans ces confrontations, sauf que les vainqueurs pensent toujours qu'ils sont les meilleurs.

Je viens de passer les voir. Je t,en remercie énormément. Cela m'a fait bcp de plaisir. je n' avais pas l'habitude de prendre des photos, donc j'ai peu de souvenirs de tous ces pays. Je ne connais pas vraiment Goma (ressemble bcp à Kigali). Nous étions au Zaïre alors et essayions d'attraper l'unique avion de la semaine pour rentrer.

This is so long ago...I can't remember why I put this pic in my blog? May be some problems in the news in that area. Do you remember the hyppo, the gazelles and what ever else?...and you refusing to eat rabbit at the restaurant and the Belgian lady had to find something else in her fridge? and I wanted to have a wild boar steak!!! It was a good time.
