    Hi, my husband has landed a contract in the DRC for 5 months. It is a construction contract close to the Congo river. My 6month old son and I will go with, maybe my three dogs depending on how difficult it is taking them with. I need to know, first and foremost, how safe is it living there? How do we go about the visums, my husband is the only one that will be working. Where in the DRC are nice places to rent, what is the costs of living there? Someone, anyone with some advice? Also, travelling, can one bring your own vehicle etc?
