good bye cameroon

It’s been a long time… here are some pictures from our final days in Cameroon.

Our last weekend there our friends threw us a farewell party. It also coincided with the opening of the playground Patrick designed and had built at the embassy. It was a huge undertaking and thanks to many people it came together very nicely. Three slides, three towers, swings, rope ladders, two bridges, a bike track, trikes, and a sand pit and lots of other goodies…

On our last Friday at post the Ambassador and his wife asked Patrick to run a beer tasting of all the beers in the commissary. He organized a tasting and a small lesson on how beer is made. It was a great event!

Looking back on these pictures makes me so thankful for all we had in Yaounde, friends who loved us and our children, a great job where people respected and were thankful for Patrick, and amazing weather. Let’s hope Manila can hold such goodness in one city.
