This is a good street. It might not look like much, but there are plenty that looked worse than this one when driving through Goma. In general, it is just a sad state of affairs for the people living there.
I was a little surprised at the sheer number of salons that there were. While it is a city of 1 million, it still seemed like a lot. I really liked all the hand-made painting/drawing done for advertising on the buildings. It was totally unexpected, but many of them are quite eye-grabbing as you go by.
A moment in time from the rough-around-the-edges and just rough-around-everywhere city of Goma.
