WFC The Democratic Republic of the Congo: Viva Riva!

Love the cinematography and the colours, the actors are pretty good, and it’s an intriguing story line. But there’s something awkward about the way it’s been edited.

Still, a really pleasant surprise.

But, man, those Angolan villains were eeevil. And I didn’t understand why the commander didn’t just shoot them when she met them. I mean, she’s in the military? She must have access to lots of weapons? And subordinates? And why is she such a bad shot? So the plot was a head-scratcher.

Viva Riva. Djo Munga. 2010. The Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Paupau Paradise

  • 1 ripe papaya
  • 10cl milk
  • 20cl dark rum
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Run all ingredients in a blender with ice cubes. Pour into cocktail glass and garnish with strawberries.

This was excellent, but I guess it depends on the quality of papaya you find. It’s much more subtle in flavour than the South American batida recipes.
