EWB Team has made it to Bakang!!

I just got a call from Dr. Steve saying that the EWB travel team has made it to Bakang!  They are sitting down to have a nice dinner at the 7-11 restaurant.  As Dr. Steve explained in a blog post from the June trip, the 7-11 in Bamendjou is not the same as a 7-11 in the U.S.  It is the only restaurant in Bamendjou, and it consists of a single room with a few wooden tables and some white plastic chairs.  They serve some very tasty Cameroonian food!

It sounds like everything is going smoothly.  I'm sure they will update on their progress in more detail in the days to come assuming they are able to access the internet.

Way to go team!
