The long arrival in Cameroon

This morning started pleasantly. I was up fairly early and went out on the newly finished hotel terrace which overlooks the lake that gives the hotel its name. The lake appears to be more like a river because there is a clear current. Strangely though this "river" changes its mind every so often and flows back the other direction. This is due to the tide ebbing and flowing. Indeed when one looks to the left, the ocean is clearly visible often containing cargo ...

My 3 hour stay with the police

A travel blog entry by vruiz84 on Jan 30, 2010

... scared, especially when I landed and ended up spending 3 hours with the airport police. It was hot, I had not slept in 2 days, and I was greatly outnumbered. There wasnt much to do, except like with everything else in Cameroon, go with the flow. In the beginning, there was a bit of animosity - although I am filipino by nationality and by color, since I was NOT black, I was immediately lumped with WHITE MEN. I realized that I wasnt very ...
