Cameroon

So right before publishing a long post about cold water showers and streets that are entirely potholes and laundry draped across the room and the terrible service of Cameroon Air (Camair), the electricity went out, and zap, there went my entire post. A good object lesson on life in the developing world. Not only are the rooms sparse and the roads awful, but the electricity goes out at minimum 2 times a day, sometimes more.

Cameroon has the dubious distinction of being named the most corrupt country in the world by Transparency International. I guess every country is number 1 at something.

So be careful, and you still haven't said what you are doing there. Is it a secret? Are you undercover?

Not undercover. Just working. I work for a non-profit fair trade company, and spend time on the road visiting artisans. Pretty sweet job I think! In Nairobi, Kenya now.

So do you see many large and grotesque bugs? Have you had many interesting culinary dishes? I think its awesome you get to have these experiences, and that you share them with us!
