Our Future Neighborhood
Our apartment is on the 4th floor of this building, which is owned by the nearby US Embassy and houses the offices and personnel of USAID.gov. We'll have a view of the Congo River and it is only 3 kilometers (1.8 mi) from the Mission Home/Office, where we will be the "Office Couple" and assist the Mission President. It is located on Kinshasa Blvd. which is the main thoroughfare of the city. (update: the above picture was posted BEFORE we arrived in Kinshasa. I copied the picture from another blog, but misunderstood their description. This is actually the building for the Mission Office (bottom floor) and the Mission Home for President and Sister Jameson (4th floor).
