Cameroon Day 1

The travel team arrived in Douala last night and rested for a few hours. After that they promptly loaded up a van and headed to Bamenda. They have reported that the scenery is gorgeous and the mountains are impressive. Everyone has been kind and warm and they had a wonderful meeting with our partner NGO, HEDECS. They did experience a power outage during a rain storm during their HEDECS meeting, but that’s part of the experience! It sounds like they have filled in the remaining nooks and crannies of their vehicle with fresh fruits such as pineapples, bananas, guavas, and coconuts.

Tomorrow is their last travel leg and they will stop in Ndu for brief meetings and then it’s onto Mbokop! They are a little exhausted from the travel (see maps in above slide show), but their excitement is keeping them going.
