"No, not that Congo..." 
is a phrase we have found ourselves repeating frequently.

If you hear about the Congo in the news, you are most likely hearing about the Democratic Republic of Congo, our neighbor to the East.

The Congo where we live is the Republic of Congo, located in the central-western part of sub-Saharan Africa.  The equator cuts through the country.
