Hi! I'm really enjoying your blog... if you're wondering why, let me tell you... I'm a 27 (almost 28-year-old) Brazilian woman, I have a major in English-Portuguese Language and Literature with a minor in teaching and apart from having worked as a teacher in my native country, now I've been teaching English in Turkey for the past 4 years. I have worked both with adults and children and right now I'm working in a kindergarten in Istanbul and I'm very successful :) But you must be wondering what all these have to do with your blog and Cameroon... there it goes: I'm in love with a Cameroonian man who I met in Turkey and we're probably getting married soon and we're thinking about settling down in his country, so I've been looking for job opportunities in Cameroon... either in schools or at universities. Do you think I have any chance to find a job there? Could you, please, please, contact me and talk to me about life in Cameroon? I will be really thrilled to hear from you! My email is
Kind regards!!

Hi there,

my name is David, I am Belgian but currently I live in London. I will be moving to Yaounde within a couple of weeks since I have been offered a volunteering job down there. I enjoyed reading on your blog since it is truly good information for me to get prepared.
However, I have been looking everywhere on prices for appartments or studios but don't find anything. Would it be possible to give me a good idea as to what I can expect and how much to pay for it per month? My plan is to stay from July until mid December 2006. If you can contact me that would be marvelous , my email is

meanwhile thanks for letting me see how beautiful Cameroon really is...

Hi I've just come back from a holiday in Cameroon (I live in London) and I went down to Kribi for a few days ... WOW!!! It's beautiful, I loved it. My boyfriend works in Yaounde and I'm thinking of going back for a few months. A friend of mine wants to come as well, she is also a teacher so I'm afraid I'm going to ask you the same thing as Danielle did ... what's the situation with finding work as a teacher in Yaounde?? She doesn't speak any French which could be a problem ... If I do come back, I'll be doing a French course before I attempt anything else!! My French is ok but it certainly needs work! Thank you for posting your beautiful photographs and I shall very much enjoy reading more of your blog. Lorien

Hi Kennedy,
Many thanks for the brilliant work you are doing( portraying the touristic values and potentials of my beloved fatherland. Well I am a cameroonian from Bamenda but studying in Sweden at the moment.Interestingly, I will be back home by February for some field survey. My work is to try to value environmental goods and services and my case study is the Kribi beach. I will therefore plead with you to make contacts with me so you can fill one of the questionnaires for me survey since you already have gone to beaches in kribi a couple of times. My email is To Danielle & Lorien, it's quite easy to find a teaching job in cameroon in primary and secondary schools especially in big cities like yaounde and douala. I personally have taught in yaounde for 2years. But I am afraid the salary situation of teachers in the private sector in cameroon is quite frustrating but at least enough to meet up with the local living standards. If you are really interested in teaching in cameroon then you need to be there during summer (June to August) as most schools recruit teachers at that time. Good luck and I hope you get Cameroon. Bienveuvue chez nous hah
