May 28, 2009

Yesterday in Moba we drove to the 'air strip' (i.e. dirt in middle of a field) to the UN helicopter. We took the UN helicopter from Moba to Pweto, back to Moba then to Kalemie. We arrived in Kalemie and boarded a small UN plane which we took to Lubumbashi. I must say, I am a little

Now in Lubumbashi we are prepping to interview a group of musicians, 'Jecoke'. They wrote a song for our documentary for the refugees, and we are going to film them tomorrow in the studio and Saturday on the grounds of an old dilapidated mining company.
We will leave for Joburg on Sunday or Monday, depending one on when/if there is a flight and two, we may need to make a stop in Lusaka (Zambia).

Our time in Pweto, Pepa, FUBE, Mpala and Moba have come to an end. I am looking forward to bringing to life the stories of these amazing places, people and more importantly, awareness to the needs and challenges they face. Each and every person I have met along the way have a uniqueness about them. So many roads and paths traveled, so many stories...

Ok, much to do, so so soooo much yet to do.

5 minutes ago, now, tomorrow-
