Make your expat project in the Democratic Republic of Congo successful

The Democratic Republic of Congo, also known as Congo-Kinshasa, is a fascinating Central African country, the second largest one on the continent. Expatriates already settled here claim that living here is a thrilling experience. Kinshasa, the capital city, is a choice destination in the country.

Although the economy is not totally stable, expatriates and foreign investors can find job opportunities in DRC.

Dance like nobody's watching!!!

12 years ago

Life is not all black or white. It has a rainbow of colours. We have our sunny days, and days that are extremely cloudy. However I firmly believe life would become a breeze if we could just de-clutter our minds and set it free. While I am here, I shall write about some interesting anecdotes from my everyday life, which we would all relate to. Our common denominator!!! Some spoken and some unspoken!!! I promise to dance like nobody's watching!!!
