Finishing up the last of my layouts from my Congo album. You can click on the links to see Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 or Part 4.
A layout about the 3rd farm we visited. Probably my least favourite day of the trip. I got car sick from the long drive there and back and just found the whole time there kind of boring.
Some photos that I took as we drove by the Congo river in Kinshasa.
I wasn't feeling well the day we went to the artist market in Kinshasa, which was too bad, because otherwise it would have been a really fun time. The vendors were all calling: "Just looking! Just looking! Mommy! Come here to just look!" Too funny! I bought a carved black rhino for Jonah and some bracelets there.
After the market, we went to the zoo. It cost us $0.70 to get in and we paid for bottles of pop for $0.30. So we did get quite a bit of bang for our buck! The housing for the animals was quite sad, really. The highlight for me was being so close to the leopard-- he was gorgeous!
A layout I created with the pockets to document some of the fun little memories or "ways of the congolese."
(In case you're wondering what the pink stuff is at the top right hand corner, it's congolese toilet paper-- pink with the texture of crepe paper!)
A final page with thoughts on the trip as a whole and how it impacted me.
And that's it for the Congo!
Thanks for looking!
