Congo Zaire, Riverboat Sunset, 1984 - In 1984, my girlfriend at the time, Gabrielle, and I traveled from Kisangani (formerly Stanleyville) to Kinshasa on the Zaire (Congo) River. The steamboat was a lively place. As we passed from port to port, awaiting barges tied themselves on to the main boat, creating an increasingly large convoy as we neared the capital. I called it the Moving Zoo. People danced on the roofs, there was a market, fights broke out, etc. This photograph was taken from the steamboat railing during a beautiful sunset.
