Life in Pointe Noire
On our way to District Meeting we saw this across the road we drive on. We took a different way going home, because the traffic will have to cross over the median and go both directions on one side. We weren't sure what type of a gathering this was going to be. It was probably too big to be a funeral on the main street.=
A few people have started coming - it's about 9:45 AM.
This is a road we traveled down with some of our elders to visit a family out of town a little ways. It soon developed into......
On our way to and from our visit above, we crossed over this water hose. This area has no wells and no electricity. The water here probably has to be paid for because it is trucked in to a tank. Even large, fancy homes, which are built right next to the small humble ones, have to carry their water in. The people who can afford it, have generators. Most people can't afford them. In the city, in many areas there is electricity - more common and available than water.
