Online interactive maps of the area

You can find a lot of maps available on the web, but most are static images.  A fun way to explore the area around us is to use an interactive map.  You can zoom in or out, and move the map around. Many even offer a satellite view, which looks tremendous. The big players are, of course, Google Maps and Microsoft Live Local.  Here are  a few links to get tou started on your geographical exploration:
Lastly, you may want to check out Google Earth -- if you meet the system requirements to install and use it. Search for Mulungwishi, Democratic Republic Congo. The initial image zooms in too close and is fuzzy, so you'll want to zoom out a bit.  You can add the roads and see the trip from Likasi to Mulungwishi. Or maybe you prefer to start at the province capital, Lubumbashi.
