pumps, pipes, and pizza

Day 2 in Yaoundé... always an adventure. We started off the morning trying to find a place to eat. That was one of the things we had taken for granted on previous trips... breakfast at the hotel. We found a MakDonalds, which was a cameroon version of the McDonalds in the states. The American music was in full force at 9am. After that, we did some things around the hotel...including journal writing, supply list reviewing, and me falling up the stairs. Amy already has a list on the clumsy things I do throughout the day. Maybe we will post that at the end of the trip for a good laugh. When we ventured out, we split up into two groups. group 1: dr steve and guy. going to airport to rescue the solar panels and pump. group 2: the students. going around the city to get supplies. Success! By 6pm we were on our way back to the hotel. Airport mishap resolved, most of the supplies purchased. Its a good thing too because we are sending the supplies and solar panels on a bus to Bamendjou tomorrow. The team, however, will be leaving on Thursday because there are a few loose ends that need to be tied. I am sure you will be reading all about that another day.

For tonight: its pizza night. Best pizza in Yaoundé shared with my homegirl, Olivia.
