Travels and Activities from the week of 2/11/2012
This is a cosmetics store that is quite nice, and shows the very common process of the 2nd story being built (it may take years to complete) while using the main floor and the wood posts(little tree trucks and branches) that hold everything up while it is being built.
This is a lumber shop - at night, the wooden doors are closed and locked. It is next to other businesses and is only the 4 shelf areas showing and a little area on the left. The Congolese people are very entrepreneurial and do amazing things with very few resources. This is the kind of shop where the people earlier in our blog bought the wood to make their home.
