day after national day


back in Yaounde. at the volunteer house again. spent yesterday in Bamenda. National Day [May 20th] was uneventful. i made no attempt at catching any events, that is. 6 of us took a van down from Bamenda today... Liz, Todd, Eli, Tucker, Traci, Mike and me. funny ride. goofy.

can't figure out what i'm going to do for the 2-3 days b/w TDW [training design workshop] and TOT [training of trainers]. Douala with Sandy? here? no, not here... Kribi? i don't know. we'll see what the others want to do. and if i get things done over these next few days...

  1. IMAGE: the first page of the cameroonian national anthem, in english. cameroon is officially bilingual, so there's also a french version... it starts on page 3 of this set that must've been given to me by a student.

    here's the rest of the english version (verse 2):

    From Shari, from where the Mungo meanders
    From along the banks of lowly Boumba Stream,
    Muster thy sons in union close around thee,
    Mighty as the Buea Mountain be their team;
    Instill in them the love of gentle ways,
    Regret for errors of the past;
    Foster, for Mother Africa, a loyalty
    That true shall remain to the last.
