WAGENIA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO MARCH 5: An unidentified young girl fish in a waterfall on March 5, 2006 in Wagenia, a fishing village outside Kisangani, in Congo, DRC. She keeps the fish in her mouth until it is full, and she will later put them in a basket. The village was founded in 1870 and they have been fishing for generations fighting colonialists and nearby tribes. The river is filled with carp, sardines, tilapia, tiger fish and many others. Still young children learn how fish at an early age, and many don?t go to school.  Congo is planning to hold general elections by July 2006, the first democratic elections in forty years.
