  • In Kinshasa, in the harbour area between Avenue Wagenia and Avenue des Enterprises there is a colorful and crowded market of African fabrics. A multitude of women, all dressed in local clothes, sells on the street the typical African fabrics, among other very unique and strong. It's a small market where the colors will blind you and where for a few dollars you can buy fabric for a tablecloth fun a little radical chic tunic for ethnic or maybe to wear in a seaside resort. It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes and hat, because normally here the outside temperature and humidity are very high. Negotiated prices and have fun choosing the most eccentric.
