Safe in Brazzaville.

I'm safe in Brazzaville. My friend, Jean (pronounced "John"), whom I met through CouchSurfing, works for the Wildlife Conservation Society, which helps protect gorillas and chimpanzees in the national parks. He's going to give me more info about visiting them. He's super cool, kind, speaks English fluently, and his family is welcoming. I love meeting new people. Their toilet is a hole in the ground, but I'm not complaining: it beats shelling out $150+ / night to be cloistered in a hotel with no real connection to its culture.

More details to come...
