Photo: Aru village in DRC at dusk

I was in Aru, a small yet buzzing village in Province Orientale in Democratic Republic of Congo near the Sudan border, in order to train agronomists in giving better plant health advice to farmers in the surrounding areas. The people are adorable and made me feel very welcome and safe. The outskirts are always lively in the evening, particularly after the rains and during Easter Sunday. Here I was just ambling along the main road near my hotel, and the colours and vibes were very relaxing. I later in the evening watched, filmed and eventually participated in a Michael Jackson tribute dance to Smooth Criminal...!

Aru, in Province Orientale in Democratic Republic of Congo near the Sudan border, is a small but buzzing town. the outskirts are always lively in the evening, particularly after the rains.
