A Long Long Long time ago I took a trip to the NorthWest province.It happened to be one of my favorite trips this year in Cameroon. Even with that said, I waited to the last minute to type up a post about it. I don't know why I waited until my last day in Cameroon. I will tell you that this post won't do the trip justice. However, I did want to share some photos that I took while there.
We visited the province of the fons (village chiefs). Their palaces where amazing. I learned so much about the history of Cameroon. Especially, which I find most interesting, are the large numbers of different ethnic groups, each with their own language. For example, the Bamum Script from the people of Foumban is a language that was developed before colonization.
We had a great time drinking rafia wine, visiting palace museums such as Babungo Museum , and enjoying friends.
Of course no trip would be complete without me getting sick or injured somehow. So, of course the first night I had food poisoning and threw up the whole night!
Bamenda is a special place. I will return there again and you will hear about all of the adventures.
