Well folks - going for a first here...... having started a new job this week I am corresponding with you from the Republic of Congo!!
I should hasten to add the RoC is the more benign of the two Congos; the better known more hostile one being the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
I'm sitting here in the capital city Brazzaville on the banks of the Congo River. The capital of the DRC (Kinshasa) is about 3 kms away on the other side of the river. [Trivia time: Kinshasa and Brazzaville are the two geographically closest capital cities in the world]
So I need to update my profile and, sadly, will replace the image of Victoria Falls in Zambia in my signature line. Just as soon as I find something worthy to photograph - which is going to be quite a challenge seeing as photography of public sights, buildings etc is actually illegal in this country!!
Will be setting up an office in the port city of Pointe Noire and high on the 'to-do' list is install high speed internet. Wouldn't want to lose touch with the WTF community - or ebay - would I!!
