Some pictures I took on the field while working. More specifically, this was a picture taken at a local market while hunting for red beans. I eventually found them but the bag broke at the office. Weeks later, we could still see the trail of red beans from my office to the office of the red bean lover who had requested this purchase !

Some pictures that reflect the nighlife in Bujumbura, and the weekends at the beach (by Lake Tanganyika). I really had good times in Bujumbura and already miss the lifestyle. This is a picture of the Havannah, a night club I went to regularly. The sign reads "tenue exigee" which can be liberally translated to: CLOTHES REQUIRED !!!! Other such examples are in this set.

It's funny that there is a Havana Club in Burundi. I wonder if there is Bujumbura Club in Cuba...

Are there clubs where clothing is optional?

Well, Xolo, you'd think that unless specified, clothes are required at the Havannah club. It's very amusing that they had to specify it.

They also specify in the toilets that it's best to lift the cover before peeing. As we can see, it's a culture of stating the obvious !
