We drove to the the starting point of the road in Loubomo today, and they kept going to the river crossing to Mayumba where the government is building a huge bridge. It is impressive, the new President is doing a lot for the country. We left at 8am and we’re back at 2pm so it wasn’t that far for a round trip. It was good to see the changing landscape, where we are in the study area is a flat savanna area with patches of swamps and forests. Once we got on the other side of the Boume Boume river the landscape changed to huge rolling hills and then forest. Cell service became standard and there were villages all along the road.
