Contributions from Nick Hobgood

  1. Democratic Republic of Congo Pizza Pizza

    Idudu, businessman/largest local bread producer and family had never had pizza.  So we made a deal, if he provided the dough, I would bring the tomato sauce, cheese and pepperoni and we would bake pizza in his bread oven. 

  2. Democratic Republic of Congo Mukobo's harvest

    Fish farmer Mukobo and family at his first harvest.  The fish he raised was Tilapia nilotica. 

  3. Democratic Republic of Congo Three Musketeers - Congo style

    Forest leaves make for good hats to protect yourself from the hot tropical sun while waiting for the pond to drain to harvest your fish.

  4. Democratic Republic of Congo Fish farming - A family affair

    Filling the pond compost bin with the boys.
