Bon Jour/Mbote/Habari ya asubuhi
We have traveled to The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
While on a photo safari, we saw gorillas in the rain forest 
and hippos in rivers. 
We spied rhinos and a herd of zebras.
We noticed that children in The Democratic Republic of the Congo are similar to children in the other countries we have visited.

While on this portion of our world wide trip, we enjoyed different varieties of bananas,
Morah Katie: Archie did you like the red banana?
Archie: Yes, red banana.
We ate a traditional sweet treat, Kashata.
Gracie: It tastes like candy.

Efraim: I like it.
