Cameroon Mountain Wanderings
I continue to put around The Ring Road, stopping in small towns and villages to checkout the history and culture, before re-supplying and camping each night among the mountains and huge eucalyptus trees.
Every town and village is bursting with history and culture – from the empires that ruled here for centuries. All have extremely large palaces, museums and beautifully decorated buildings. Often the buildings have ornately carved sculptures and pillars depicting scenes from an earlier time.
I camp a night at the Botanic Gardens just outside the regional capital of Bamenda, and I am extremely happy to see how well maintained and cared for the whole grounds are. There are many signs and displays depicting the world today, and how peace needs to be the goal of all humanity. I really like it here.
The haze of Harmattan continues to obscure the best of the views, though it’s obvious the mountains around here are extremely impressive and ever-present.
