The awesome, must-read blog, African Heroes: Stories of Brave Badasses, describes a night in Goma with uncanny precision:
I am going to another frat party tonight at another gorgeous house on Lake Kivu with the same playlist of late 1990s songs and the same 100 people none of whom I am in love with except the guy who has a girlfriend. Tomorrow I will have a hangover and spend the whole day doing my laundrey and wincing from the sound of the planes and wondering why the hell we pay our gaurds when all they do is sit on their street and jeopardize our security. They should be called insecurity gaurds.
Third Eye Blind is the soundtrack of the Eastern Congo.
