Things That Surprise Me About Bafia, Cameroon

1- Toothpaste is more expensive here than in the States even taking into consideration the exchange rate. A travel size Colgate is $1 in the U.S. and $1.25 here. What?

2- The humidity is crazy hot and it feels like 90F, yet I enjoy wearing long skirts and pants. Why? Damn mosquitoes.

3- I do not understand how I ever lived life without a pocket knife or a bucket.

4- People yell LA BLANCHE at me! If anybody has lighter skin than them, they are called white; thus, I am a white person here!
