December Details - Part 2

07 Dec - By boat from Kindu downstream on the Lualaba River.
08 Dec - Arrives at Ponthierville.
           - By rail from Ponthierville to Stanleyville. (Railway completed in 1906)
09 Dec - By boat from Stanleyville downstream on the Congo River.
12 Dec - Arrives at Bonga.

Fun fact: The area around Ponthierville (now modern-day Ubundu) is where some parts of "The African Queen" were filmed.
