Today before arriving at the campsite, we made our way to a shopping centre to buy some food and snacks and there was internet and so have you. That place was like a shopping centre from the UK or the US. It was very modern and it was full of white tourists! There were all kinds of restaurants even a subway! but no we didn't eat there. Tonight we were suppose to provide our own dinner. Myself, Ellaina, Steve, Larrissa, Kasey and Matt, decided to catch a public bus into town and eat at a local resturant which had traditional food. We found one in the lonely planet book, which was called Fajimas. It was near the internet cafe, which I wrote to you a while ago for the first time since I left to Africa
I highly recommend that place. They stayed open only for us, and they were one of the best people we had met. It was a great opportunity for us to chat with the locals and to learn a few things about their culture. They taught us how to eat the traditional way, without any forks and spoons. As Kasey pointed out several times on this trip, it feels naughty to be doing something, like eating with your hands, only playing with your food, getting in a taxi with 2 of you in the front and 5 in the back, with no seat belts! Larrissa told us in Cameron, where she lived for 3 months, you could fit 8-10 people in the taxi! ;)
