Maroua, Cameroon

I just ran across this video from a friend of ours blog.  It is a video of Maroua, Cameroon, which is far northern part of Cameroon.  Maroua looks VERY different than Yaounde, where we will be stationed, but I thought it would give you an idea of the culture there.  Few notes of interest on the video:

  • Language–French
  • People–Most of the people have a different face structure which is more like northern African.  It is long and slender, not short and chubby.
  • Houses–Thatch roofs in a funny dunce cap shape.
  • Terrain–Much more savannah/desert with jutting rocks, than Yaounde.
