I was helping make hamburgers and fries with some other Volunteers for some of our Cameroonian friends while visiting my regional capital. I love children here and this young girl seemed amiable enough that I could approach her. She didn’t quite get the fist bump so it turned into a one finger and thus, voila, E.T. phone home!

Cameroon Africa youth cultural exchange adorable

stompoutmalaria:

Called “ashwabi” in the local language of Pidgin from Cameroon, this fabric was made for the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps. The background lists every Peace Corps county in Africa, and across the “ashwabi” says “50 years” in each country’s official language.  Pretty cool!

It arrived at our 2nd Boot Camp via our two Cameroon attendees. Thanks guys!
