What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

I met some fascinating people and I had a great time overall. Work was super hard and stressful, but I had a good team. I met great people outside of the embassy which made life bearable and fun. There is not a lot of travel you can do within the country. Although, you can go to Bayanga if you want to see gorillas and elephants. - Oct 5, 2017
Traveling 'upcountry' to the provinces, which gives you a pretty good idea of how poor and remote a country this is. There's Bangui and then there's the rest of the country and one is not like the other. - Jan 2, 2012
