"Psychological hunger is when your house has a view of an oil rig and you still struggle to feed your family everyday."from a BBC report on a northern Angolan oil-rich / people-poor territory, where there's an annual oil revenue of $100,000 per head... but how much do the people get?
...speaking of 100,000, moms and i are in Yaounde now. at the Hilton. long trip down from Wum. 40,000 cfa and 3 hours to Bamenda. 60,000 cfa and 6 hours from Bamenda. left Wum late. it's now mid-night. i wonder about that 100,000 cfa. it bothers me, for a few reasons:
- what could've been down with that money.
- how easy it would've been to spend less.
- what it meant (to the Cameroonians around us) to spend that much.
