We have arrived
Well we have arrived in Cameroon. We arrived after a pretty uneventful flight and passport control was much easier than we anticipated. The ride to Buea (about 2 hours) was pretty hairy. Lots of pot holes lots a rain and a general free for all on the lanes. Weaving in and out of traffic.
Our house is great we are sharing it with our hosts and their family. We had a lovely meal when we arrived. We have our own bedroom with a proper bed an en-suite. We have a shower and bath but only cold water, which sure wakes you up in the morning. Having cold water is pretty good though as when they moved in last week there was not electricity or running water, by the time we arrive we had both. Although it is a little temperamental at times!!! Lots of work still needs to be done one the house but we are settling in pretty well.
As you are all enjoying a heatwave we are getting pretty wet. It is the middle of the rainy season. Monday night was terrible heavy very loud rain all night. It is not usually that heavy they reassure us. In fact it was so heavy there was a landslide near by killing 4 people.
