Cameroun – Yaoundé
Yaoundé – Patisserie Heaven
Heading into the capital was a nice surprise as Yaoundé was a fairly easy city to travel around, for a capital it was very laid back.
The best thing of all was the fact that on every street corner there was some kind of patisserie that would serve simple french sticks to the most amazing cakes and pastries I have had in a very long time, and they were cheap!
It was here that we met up with a dutch cyclist, Ente. Reka had previously met Ente in Abuja, Nigeria while trying to enquire about an Angolan visa, Ente was travelling by Bicycle from Holland to South Africa (crazy dutchman) and we met him again in Yaounde while staying in the Presbyterian church.
For the next few days, we spent our time amongst other things playing Uno and drinking beers and Ente introduced me to omelette & sardine sandwiches for breakfast (with chilli and mayonnaise) and yes it sounds strange but it was tasty and filling!
We had a nice few days with Ente and I wish him all the best on his amazing journey. For those that can read dutch, his blog is: http://entegatochfietsen.waarbenjij.nu/
After getting our DRC visa in Yaoundé we then setoff for the border with Congo Brazzaville.
