We were riding motorcycles through the night in an effort to reach Numbi. It was after midnight, and the treacherous ride had taken its toll on our bodies and motorcycles.
Exhausted, we took a break on a mountain pass. The night was dead quiet, and clear enough to see that no animals or rebels would ambush us. We did not, however, expect this amazing view. The distant volcano, Mt. Nyiragongo, was framed perfectly with Lake Kivu and a couple small towns.
