Pointe Noire

That's where I am at the moment, on the Atlantic Coast of the Republic of Congo, also known as Congo-Brazzaville to distinguish it from the Democratic Republic of Congo or Congo-Kinshasa, which used to be Zaire and before that the Belgian Congo. Confused?

Pointe Noire has a strong French colonial heritage and there are many excellent French restaurants here. The seafood is, as you might expect, excellent!

I'm also entering this just to make sure that I can, so let's press the publish button. . . .
