Hi, just to show you how great Bujumbura is, here some pictures of lake Tanganyika. Bujumbura is on its northern end in the West, you can see the mountains of the Democratic Republic Congo (DRC) and in the East the hills of Burundi.
The pictures overlook the lake to the south, so DRC is on the right side, Bujumbura on the left) By the way, someone was asking if I crossed into Congo. Luckily I did not, around Goma, (border city to Gisenyi in Rwanda) the trouble started again a couple of weeks ago. You can cross again from Bujumbura, but Congo is simply not safe yet.
