2/5

I accepted photo challenge from Nina to combine two challenges into one. Nina, Indonesian woman expat who has been living in several countries (lately she’s living in England) and traveling to many countries around the globe. I did follow her blog since couple of years ago and amazed with her photography works, especially with her architecture photography. You can check her blog here.

The rules of the 5 days challenge are:

1. On 5 consecutive days. create a post using either a pas or recent photo in B&W only for Black and White Challenge OR in color for Five photos – Five stories challenge.

2. Each day invite another blogger friend to join in the fun.

Cruising at Congo River

Surely, don’t think it’s like cruising with five star cruishing ship. Democratic Republic of the Congo has serious problem for transportation access. There are many cities and villages can’t be reached by road. Unavailabiity access road makes many areas are hard to be reached. Plane can be an option if passengers need to be arrived faster. For passengers that have limitation budget, they can choose to cruise along Congo river.

The ships are over loaded, full of people with many kind of stuffs. Black smoke kept coming out, forcing passenger to inhale it along the journey that can take two to three days.

  1. Yay, thank you! I am still choosing my photos for this challenge, since Mbak Indah has chosen me, too :haha. I just want to give my best :hehe.
    Once again, thank you so much!
    About the photo… it made me stunned. Seriously, people have to get on that boat for three days? The smoke, and it looks like the ship was holding so many things too, it looks like the ship would be sunk soon. Oh, I wish people riding the ship were all safe and sound.
