Return to Maroua





Next day we set off for our return to Maroua, stopping at the man made lake in Maga where we saw a fisherman village. We had more tire troubles here. Also, the driver took out the battery and repaired it in the village. We had to wait an hour in the sun surrounded by village children asking for cadeaux. It was so not comfortable!

We finally arrived to Maroua and drove by the giant mosque (still being built after 10 years due to money problems). We also took a trip to the tannery to see men prepare leather with their hands. Check out the pictures on this one! They shed the hair off the animal after it has soaked in water.

Hey, it's cool you have been able to get so close to those animals out in the wild like elephants and giraffes.
