Come on everybody now, do that Congo *

Found out last night at our last session of support worker training, that my Congolese families will be a single man, and a mum, dad and two kids - son aged 13, daughter aged 7. I learnt how to make fufu - a kind of polenta type thing that forms the basis of most Congolese meals.

And did you know that in the Congo, women are the bottom of the food chain - below their children?

* Conga, Miami Sound Machine. If you guessed that you get one million bonus points.
