Hi everyone,
I have just moved to Brazzaville from Goma in DRC. Would happily meet up with you if you live here to get to know a few people and a few places to visit. I enjoy the nature so would appreciate any tips you have on getting out of the city.
Also, I am looking for any information on finding a place to live. If you have any contacts please send them my way.
Hope to be seeing some of you soon.

Hi,
My name is yulia. I live in russia, but I have a friend in Brazzaville, who I didn't see many years. So I would like to know how is he doing, how is his health, how is his family doing and I would like to keep contact with him if he doesn't mind. It is not difficult to find him in Brazzaville, because there are only five people like him in the whole country. He is a doc in russian filology. He worked and may be still works in lycee of revolution teaching russian language.His name is Paul Ondombo and he adress was and may be still is Poto Poto Bangalas street 126. I sent him a letter about a month ago, asking reply to my email, but still didn't get anyhting. May be he didn't get my letter or may be he cannot send me a email. May be with the help of your forum I can keep contact with him. And if you see, ask him if he needs money, if yes, I can transfer him a little from time to time through the post office.

Besides could you please tell me is internet connection available in Brazzaville, is it expensive and accessible?

Thank you for your help in advance,
Yulia.

Hi how are you all.
I liked to work in the congo the people is excellent,helpful and friendly.

I was thinking off starting a business in congo while working there.
On Wednesday the 26th I arrived on or tambo to fly back to congo, I was surprised to hear that I was not booked on a flight.I phoned my manager and then only I was told that they have stopped the project and I am not coming back.I think from my employer it was very rude and unprofessional I am still trying to find my private things, tools and sentimental things that I had there.
But never mind I want to work in congo again.
I am a electrical foreman will accept even work as electrician.

Thank you.
To a lovely people and country.
