    I hired a car with a driver and was driven around the city. This city is quite full of greenery with forest parks everywhere. Nice to see that Brazzaville cares about trees. You can even stop by in one of the park and take a walk. However it's advised that you walk with someone with you.

    Near the port along the Congo river where one can hire boats to sail around the irver, Mami Wata offers a good view of Kinshasa across the mighty river. It has buffet food and patronised by a lot of expats

    Brazzaville has an international airport, as you may imagine. But, it can also be reached by boat along the Zaire river (from Kisangani - Congo People Republic) or the Oubangui river (from Bangui - Centrafrica Republic). And a railway exists from Pointe Noire, the commercial harbour on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean: the railway, which crosses a wild mountain range, is said to be cost one white-man per kilometre and one-black per metre due to the very difficult environmental conditions.

    Located south of the city, there is an impressive rapids along the wide Congo River. One can see women doing the laundry on the river and the city of Kinshasa across it. There is a restaurant that overlooks the rapids and it is a relaxing place to have a few beers and contemplate as the torrential river unleashes a mighty roar.

    Favorite thing: Having Ngok beer along the Congo river. Now that's so Brazzaville!

    Fondest memory: This is surprisingly a refreshing beer. They come in large green bottles with a picture of a crocodile on it. Apparently, Ngok means crocodile.

    Fondest memory: I remember the deep impression of walking in Brazzavile. The forest is 'within' the city, 'within' you: you can feel the breath of the huge plants towering around in the gardens and immediately in the outskirts of the city. The perennial fog, due to very high humidity rate and the presence of the impressively wide Zaire river, the constant temperature around 25-30 degrees gave me the impression to be incapsulated in Mother Nature's womb.
    Just the opposite side of the river, lost in the foggy landscape, one can hardly recognize the huge Kinshasa: when the airplan is landing in Brazza's airport you will overfly Kinshasa for a long time, then, suddenly, Brazzaville appears as a small neiborough.
