Crossing the Congo

I made this short movie over a year ago. The "executive ferry" runs across the River Congo between Brazzaville (capital of the Republic of Congo) to Kinshasa (capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo). The cities are located at the lower end of Lake Stanley, just before the mighty river plunges through a series of rapids to the coast. All the ships, boats and barges you see are essentially confined to the upper reaches of the river.

This is my first effort using YouTube. The movie was made with my Fuji S7000 in movie mode. I made one other movie with this camera so, until I think about buying a digital movie camera, my repertoire will be limited.
