Cameroon turned out to be a difficult country to travel in, at least for a while. My trip began with an unfortunate incident with the chief of a village near Limbe. That incident led to the acquisition of a travel partner who brought me frustration and humor in equal amounts. Crisscrossing the country, my new friends and I learned a lot about culture, wealth, dirt, commerce and life.
