"Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink."

This is such a ridiculous problem. Congo is a tropical jungle, not a desert. There's water everywhere, and yet the country can't supply most of its citizens with clean drinking water. You have no idea how frustrating it is to sit on the edge of Lake Kivu and see all that water which can easily be purified, yet you have no water coming out of your tap. For me, this was only a temporary (albeit recurring) problem. For millions of Congolese, it's a daily frustration.
