The runway at Bandundu was really rough.  I could almost hear the plane complaining about the rough “pavement”.  Before we landed we had to make sure all of the people who were walking around on the runway were gone.  That was a first for me.

When we landed in Bandundu today everyone wanted their picture taken with me (the Mazungu) and the plane.  One of them had a camera and I had them take some with my camera also.  The cameraman had a very hard time working out how to use my camera.  First he was trying to use it upside down.  It looked to me like he was aiming the camera a bit low.  As it turns out, I only ended up with one where I have (most of) my head in the shot.  Here I am with the local immigration official: Patrick and DGM official
