The Congo in the 1960s

external image moz-screenshot.jpgexternal image moz-screenshot-1.jpgexternal image moz-screenshot-2.jpgThe landscape of The Congo is mostly rolling plains, with mountains to its East and forests throughout the land. The Congo river is the main transportation through the country at this point in time, and very few cities are industrialized, but in those rare occasions they contain a large population. The population at this point is much like Lebanon in ethnic structure - a person's first and foremost loyalty is to his family, then tribe, then province, and finally national unity. Rural areas still do not have much contact with cities, but communicate through traders that come through the area (either Belgian or Belgian employed Congolese).
