I had a good meeting with the prof I needed to meet and he was a good source of information. Everyone was very helpful.

The Kinshasa univeristy (the "Lovanium") is the big public university of Kinshasa occupying a sprawling hilly area. Some parts date from the 50s and 60s and have some archeological charm. However most of the university is in bad need of maintenance and money. The roads are poor and the buildings crumbling. Student housing is so insufficient there is serious overcrowding.... More
