"The road home, such as it is. Rotting bridges, makeshift ferries, it’s an adventure. Fortunately, ours was a good adventure. The Congo is a place that’s always fascinated me. This is a trip I’ve been wanting to take since I’ve been writing stories or making television. But what I found was something unexpected. I met a lot of people who, for a long time, have been waiting, hoping for things to get better. A lot more hope here than there’s any right to expect. When all is said and done, I wanted to go to the Congo and I did."
