Playgrounds

Lily is a big fan of playgrounds. She doesn’t like the swings much, but she loves slides. We haven’t yet found a public playground here, and I doubt we will. There are, however, several private playgrounds here. There is a playground at her school, one at a US Embassy-owned property, one at the Brazzaville Tennis Club (more on that later), and one enormous amazing place called Fantaysa. Fantaysa costs about $10 per child, which is insanely expensive for Congo. It’s Lily’s favorite place so far.

It’s really nice to have an option like this, especially for the next two months before school starts.
