Organising the trek and relaxing

Got up and wandered down to the restaurant for breakfast, pancakes, nice baguette with butter and jam and real coffee!
Steep-sided islands in a glistening sea

The main activity was a trip through to Buea to book the Mount Cameroon trek. We took a drop to Mile 4 motor park and then bought tickets for a bus to Buea. The motor parks actually have ticket offices, unfortunately the man at the Buea window was a bit aggressive. The standard of driving in Cameroon seems to be higher than in Nigeria, fewer mad overtaking manoeuvres and generally less aggressive drivers.

In Limbe

A quick update as I’m in an internet cafe.

We travelled from Calabar to Limbe in Cameroon by overnight ferry, tedious but relatively safe and comfortable. Arrived yesterday, checked into the Park Hotel Miramar, fantastic view of the bay and good food.

Today we took a bus to Buea and booked the Mount Cameroon trip, we’ll be going up the Guinness trail and back down via Mann Spring.

More (with pictures) on my return to Abuja.

Happy Christmas to everyone.
