Dawning in Goma

The city of Goma dawns early. The streets of the second most important city after the capital Kinshasa are full of merchants and back-and-forth motorbikes. This is a popular trading area near the Rwandan border. At the back, the Nyiaragongo volcano. Goma has been in peace since 2013 when the armed group M23 was dismantled.
