The Boys in Bamenda

After 15 flights, five states, and two indulgent months with our families, we’re recharged and ready to take on Africa.  The excitement continued after we landed – I had one day to fight for an 11th hour visa from the Cameroonian embassy and then it was off to Bamenda, Cameroon for KM school in English.  Cameroon is divided into French in the south and a resistant English speaking contingent in the north.  For five days we enjoyed a spiritual feast and extraordinary hospitality from our Cameroonian brothers.
