25 december


Today is Christmas, nice to see how people prepared the church, the songs, the decorations for this which for Christians is the most important feast. Mass begins at eight, and ends just under eleven. The Mass in Congolese is very long, mainly made up of songs and dances, very involving. Lunch, around noon, is all done together, and after a short relaxation, we went with Eric to find a family, very dear to him, on the other side of the city. I agree to accompany him, but I ask him to be back at half past five at the latest, I want to pack my bags for the morning and rest a bit, in the last few days I have not been very well. In the evening, after dinner to sleep very early, I am a little tired and I have to rest for the next few days which will surely be demanding.
