We spent a week with Bismack Biyombo in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo. The city sits at the base of an active volcano that is a part of every aspect of life. The city was rebuilt after a devastating eruption in 2002, with many of the cities buildings being built from the very volcanic rock that destroyed it. With that in mind, Bismack Biyombo made the 5 hour trek to the top of the mountain, to experience the raw power and beauty of his native country.
