    • finding and climbing mount sharp in the virunga mountains

      Parc National de Virunga May 20, 2012 at 4:46 AM

      I am trying to locate a mountain 15-20 miles north of lake Kivu, which was named mount sharp by an explorer Grogan in about 1890. He wrote a book called "from Cape to Cairo" with his companion Arthur Sharp naming the mountain after him. Sharp is my great grandfather and my brother and I want to determine whether it can be safely climbed. Grogan describes six volcanoes north of Lake Kivu and this as being in a western section of two mountains, the other being higher. it as a mountain that has a crater several miles in circumference.
      Can you help me by identifying the modern name of the mountain, how I can obtain a map of the area and how we could climb it if this is safe?

      I will be in Lubumbashi with six others on a short-term mission trip. We were hoping to see Victoria Falls but we are very concerned about train travel between the two...it seems unpredictable at best. Does anyone know a tour operator for our trip or have other suggestions? We are trying to avoid airfare due to the cost.

      Conditions in Kinshasa?

      Kinshasa Oct 4, 2011 at 4:38 PM

      I am planning to go to Kinshasa in Jan.2012 for three weeks. It is part of a project I want to do with Congolese teachers from Christian schools. All government agencies warn against non-essential travelling. Hence my question(s), what are hygiene conditions, money/banking/atm conditions, safety conditions like in Kinshasa, and, yes, what should be my main health concerns, e.g. Malaria etc.? Part of this project would (hopefully) entail a stay with local teachers in their homes and at their workplace. What are local conditions like?
      Anyone out there with experience, anyone there who lived or lives in Kinshasa?

      Would love to hear from you!

      This sounds strange but.. has anyone had their hair cut in Goma, particularly men?

      The locals here all seem to shave their head so I'm afraid of what will happen if I walk in with a full set.. the expats seem to grow it out long or wait to get it cut back at home.

      Thanks!
