Ngaoundere, Cameroun

Located in the the Adamawa of Cameroon's ten regions, I write this post from the city of Ngaoundéré, my new home for the next two years!

With a population of 400,000 habitants, the regional capital sits at the end of the train line to Yaounde and links North and South Cameroon. Named after Mount Ngaoundéré , the city comprises of both Muslim and Christian populations. Interestingly enough, there is also a Norwegian population (thanks to a Norwegian mission) along with a handful of Peace Corps Volunteers!

Lamido Palace and Lamido Grand Mosque
The Petite Marché

Each Peace Corps experience is different and I'm looking forward to living and working in the heart of "The Land of Milk and Honey!"
