Een absolute aanrader. Doorheen dit meeslepende reisverhaal, weet Lieve Joris steeds de juiste toon te vinden: eerlijk, zelfbewust, kritisch, maar ook mild en menselijk, zonder in melige filantropie te vervallen. Ook haar beeldend taalgebruik en haar zin voor precisie verdienen bewondering.

Excellent récit du voyage de L Joris au Congo dans les années 80, sur les traces de son oncle ancien missionnaire belge.
Chouette écriture, roman intéressant, beau récit de voyage.
Pas bouleversant.

Although I don't usually read travelogues, I thoroughly enjoyed this one, about the personal exploration of the Congo by the author. She write very well.

Woman travels to the Congo to follow in her missionary uncle's footsteps (book was written in 1987). Good account of life in that country after Belgium left and Mobutu took over.
