An eventful Weekend

This weekend was quite eventful. On Friday, I attended a wonderful concert at the French Cultural Center. We listened to the sounds of a group named Gueyanka. The lead singer is a female who had an amazing voice, which echoed throughout the whole auditorium. The group is from Northern Cameroon and play upbeat and uplifting music from the area.

Saturday, I went to the National Museum where they have artifacts from different cultural aspects of Cameroon. From the photos you will find typical thrones that chiefs will use and family compounds. It was a wonderful museum and I will return again. A friend then took me to the food market, where we bought food to cook dinner for the night. The markets here are filled with people, foods, sounds, and so much more. We took the food home, and along with others cooked a wonderful dinner.

This post is short because I am off to do work for school. However, I wanted to post something about the weekend.I hope everyone is doing well. I hope you enjoy the pictures!!

Hi Jen,
It is great to see some more photos of Yaoundé. Did you know that the building that hosts the museum was once the presidency? Wow it looks like you were preparing a delicious meal of Ndole. It rained today in Long Beach and it smells so 'dusty' out here. Have a great week.
