:: C A M E R O O N :: In the Middle of Africa

These are pictures of the Central African nation of Cameroon. The pictures will show you the city of Douala, the towns of Limbe and Buea, and the village of Lougame.



I technically didn't take these pictures but my parents did. Though I was the one who told them to take lots of pictures and I also edited the pictures so I'm sure thats fine for Urban Showcase.

A lot of these pictures we're taken from a moving car and some were taken at night so the quality is not so good with some of the photos.

First we'll start with the city of Douala, Cameroon's largest city and economic hub.

I'm dragging this thread out so that's all for today! Tomorrow I'll have more pics of Douala and also the village of Loungame.

It's amazing how similar looking cities are when photos are taken of informal commerce on the streets! Interesting thread, can't wait for more pics.
