this is my first blog ever, so I'm still in an experimental fase, meaning lots of things may change in the future (or everything might just stay the same if I like it the way it is now). The reason I started a blog is because I'll be travelling to the Democratic Republic of the Congo for six weeks (from the 4th of august untill the 15th of september), as part of a research project. All the information on the kongoking project can be found on this site: www.kongoking.org. The purpose of this blog is to keep everybody who's interested in what will happen during my stay in Congo informed. I intend to regularly upload pictures and new stories, but since we'll be travelling from village to village, the chances that I'll have internet access are very small. Anyway, the next time I post a new message, I hope to be in Congo!
