Thursday Celebrations


Every Thursday afternoon there is a #worship #service just outside the #church, and since we live in a house opposite the church, that means it is just outside our house. Today, the #Christmas celebrations began. #3daystillthebirthdayofJesus #timetoworship #egliseevangeliqueducongo #everydaylife #congobrazzaville #nursingstudent #livetsomstudent #blivandesjuksköterska

Swedish Planning Mind


Everyday #life in #Congo #Brazzaville. Even though my #Swedish planning mind consider one roll of #toiletpaper as "toilet paper soon finished, should immediately go and buy a new one", this is not the general thinking here in Congo. No, here something is #finished when it's finished, not before it's finished. Actually, it's finished when you have been missing it for some time. Therefore, I'd better get used to a few days without toilet paper... #culturaldifferences #diversity #congolesewayofthinking  #everydaylife #congobrazzaville #nursingstudent #livetsomstudent #blivandesjuksk√∂terska
