People always think of Congo as a primitive jungle! Gorillas, rainforest, muddy roads and civil wars! Except for the animal part, not a lot of people can think of anything nice can come out from this country.
But like many other African countries, Congo is slowly rebuilding it infrastructure, with the help of the Chinese Government! Everywhere I had been, there’s loads of Chinese investments! The roads might be bad right now, but in 5 or 10 years time, I think it will be a whole new world in Africa. There’s just so many natural resources in Africa and if that country are not at war, that African country should be very rich. However, a lot of African countries are still under the control of a corrupted government with so many years of DICTATORSHIP! You can tell by how the government spent so much money on Big buildings but little money on people! Just take a look at this impressive Brasilica at the capital of Congo! It was built at the 70’s but still look really nice even for now.
The roof is made of tiles and the doors are made with copper.style-span” style=”-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.296875); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);”>
Brazzaville to me is just like any other city in the world. You can find anything in here and is not particularly dangerous. There are some interesting buildings, e.g. The train station.
Many many ‘ impressive’ statues:p
This capital city actually is a port which connect both side of the congo river. Right ross the river is DRC’s capital – Kinshasa.It look like a modern city with many high rise to me which is really surprising. Some part of DRC are still at war but their capital city have more high rises than the capital of Republic of Congo!!
People seem to have a very peaceful and relax life in the Congo after many years of civil war. Fashion is still one of the main things in this African country:)
Even the man dress up nicely like the other African country.
I am fascinated by the safety seat belt of the local taxi! They made the clip at the side of the window so the seat belt actually fit better and will not get onto your neck!
Afterall, Congo, or maybe the capital of Congo–is just like any city in the world!!!It’s not as primitive as most people think! Cheers:)
