48 hours in Monkole
We started our adventure with great unknowns. Many times we read and see things about the day-to-day in Kinshasa, but soon after landing at the airport, we realized that everything we had heard was unimaginable.
The first day in the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo was an avalanche of sensations. First thing in the morning, we went to an orphanage in Kimbondo, where 800 children lived with different problems. It all started with a mass in Lingala, which we did not understand hardly nothing, but we discover the sentiments which are among the hundreds of children and people who came to mass. Then, we went to the area of child care where we expected the avalanche of children that surrounded us eager to receive affection, hugs and caresses. It was that moment when we discover the value of happiness, so awesome that we took the opportunity to take a few snapshots, trying to capture the joy that children reflected.
