Alex's arrival, rest in Limbe, friends in Doumbouo, and coffee harvest

I may be taking the easy way out here, but I'm going to go for another photo blog. Pictures speak louder than words, right?

1. Ma soeur/amie Alex Moore, fellow member of the Breaking Ground team, arrived in Douala on Dec 27th. After a typical day-long ordeal in a bush taxi to meet her in Douala, she and I traveled with our dear friend (and papa) Tsamo Thomas, friend and driver of most SIT students who have passed through Cameroon, to his new hotel in Limbe. His hotel, Tsaben Beach Hotel, is located at Mile 11 just outside of Limbe. It is close enough to town to have access to everything you need, but far enough away that it is quiet and calm, with access to the clearest and cleanest water I've seen in Cameroon. In short: we slept, ate good food, swam, and rested. Thanks, Thomas!

Shameless plug: Tsaben Beach Hotel, +237 79 26 64 05 / 95 05 08 65. Mile 11, Limbe. Go there!

2. Upon returning to Dschang, we spent a day in Doumbouo visiting old friends. In photos:

3. And today, we met up with Zangue Paul, Breaking Ground's on-site project manager, to visit the Menouet River Bridge site, and to learn how to harvest coffee. I'll acknowledge that Alex and I may not be QUITE as efficient at removing the cherries from the trees, but I think we did pretty well!

Big night tonight! Kicking off the New Years' celebrations with friends in Batsengla, the first village in Doumbouo, before heading to a fête in Dschang. Bonne année, tout le monde!
