It receives a highrainfall with the average of Tropical Rainforest’sclimate is hot and humid. The soil is not known tohave many nutrients, because they get washed awayin all the rain.
Today the African rainforest is home tosome of the most celebrated tribalpeople, the so-called Pygmies of theIturi forest in northern Zaire. The tallestof these people, known as the Mbuti,rarely exceed 5 feet (1.5 m) in height.Besides the Mbuti, there are three othermajor rainforest peoples of Africa: theAka (Central African Republic andnorthern Congo), the Baka (southernCameroon), and the Twa (central ZaireRiver basin). Their main occupationgenerally primary.
About 60 million people in central Africahave a close relationship with therainforest, and some of them depend on itfor food, shelter, and medicine.

There are a lot of differences rather than similaritiesbetween Congo and USA. Congo is more like home ofprimitive people while Americans can’t even think tolive without technology. But, Congo has far cleaner airthan heavily polluted USA
According to my friend, it is USA which is more favourable.The technology now can’t come in the mind of people of1800s. The standard of living and the infrastructure arealso the aspects which changed people’s lives
According to me, comparing with many aspectsto consider, it is difficult to tell. I think of aworld having both the place’s strength. USA’stechnology, good standard of living and Congo’spollution-free natural environment, havingvariety of species and people’s cultural andspiritual belief. These aspects will helphumanity for a long race.
