Bored in the Congo Quiz

|Man!!! What a country. It is Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". The second largest river in Africa snakes it's way through this enormous country, through tropical rain forests so dense you could lose a city in them. These forests almost certainly contain animals that no scientists has ever seen, and quite possibly they contain plans and bugs that no human has ever seen. From it's brutal origins as a playground for King Leopold of Belgium, through it's shaky independence, to it's current precarious position, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire and the Belgian Congo) has never had it easy.|
I'm stuck in Lubumbashi in the south of the country waiting to get home after doing a site inspection at a copper mine in Kolwezi. I've decided to add the Congo to my list of "Bored in ..." quizzes, and I invite you all to enjoy it.
The picture shows a forkfull of palm grubs that I was "enticed" (peer pressure and beer are strong persuaders) to eat while in the Congo recently. I can't say that they're my favourite dish...
