Before leaving Yaoundé I wanted to make sure I would be able to wish my mom a very happy birthday, and I really had no idea what the communication situation would be like in the north province. Therefore, I wrote this post two weeks ahead, just to make sure its message would arrive on time.
Happy Birthday Mom!!
After having lived with several other families, my original mom is definitely my favorite. Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks, but don’t be surprised if your “birthday present” looks a lot like a regular souvenir.
And because I try really hard not to post without pictures, here’s a shot of lightning on the beach in Kribi. I tried to come up with something corny about my mom lighting up my life to tie it to this post, but honestly it’s just because I really like the picture.
