to something completely different - Burundi

since I was giving a workshop for meteorological station networks and analysis last week in Burundi, now a few pictures of a totally different climate. 
Arrival was on Saturday, and after checking into the hotel, the driver and me did a small tour through town and visited the National Museum of Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. It is a very small town at Tanganyika lake. There are Crocodiles and Chimpanzees, a Leopard and a lot of poisonous snakes.

Also guards that play with the crocodiles - after feeding I guess...

Burundi has beautiful beaches and people do have a lot of fun playing at and in the water. It is a nice place to hang out on the weekends, enyoying the water and later also a beer.

Also the Kongo is not very far away, just on the other side of the Tanganyika lake.
