      I need some serious help.

      by Arun2708 Online Now Nov 24, 2013 at 6:01 AM

      My fiancée is in Goma and i am struck up in another country. Want to send her flowers and it seems that everything goes against my will. The websites doesn't deliver anything there. The DRC doesnt have a Zip code. I cant find any local vendor and is completely lost. This is i guess my last resort. Hope it help.

      Haircuts in Goma

      by lamsterz Online Now Jul 13, 2011 at 8:39 AM

      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.

      Ruwenzori - Mountains of the Moon.

      by torabr Online Now Sep 10, 2006 at 10:26 AM

      Is it possible to hire a guide and go climbing Mount Margaritha from Goma. How far away and is it possible to hire a truck or go by bus. I have previously climber Kilimanjaro and now like to climb Ruwenzori. Are there any difficulties when crossing the border to Uganda or shall one stay in Congo?

      Thank You, Torgil Abrahamsson, Stockholm, SWEDEN (
