Auf Wiedersehen

Written by: The Bridge on Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

Ok, this is the final post for this adventure. Paul Vetter and I will sit down one last time for a meal of Gari with Afang soup. You’ve been a wonderful audience! Thanks a lot for your comments, they made the blogs come more alive. Hopefully, I’ve been able to give everybody a better picture of what this place is all about. However, reading some of your comments, and emails that I got, I realize that I can never fully explain this place ....

In the Jungle…

Written by: The Bridge on Friday, September 22nd, 2006

The contrast between the people living in the jungle and people living in the richer part of the cities is startling at times. After going through a rich part of the town and then going into the jungle to look at the mud huts, is like visiting another planet.

A few times when I didn’t have all that much energy, the doctor did a blood test and every time he said that the malaria count was low. So it seems to work, for me anyway. What might also help is eating the local food, they use l....

Keeping Busy!

A few months ago, some of the guys started working on a sign for the community, to be put up at the junction. The old one had been torn down a few years before by vandals. I thought that they would never finish before we leave, but surprise, surprise a few weeks ago they finished it and put it up. They used roofing tiles as a roof, looks pretty good too might add! One of the gate watchmen is an artist, so he did the paint work, and the guys di....

The Mill

Written by: The Bridge on Monday, September 18th, 2006

This post was written by Talitha; just before she left, she told me to post it for her. Sorry for pushing it off so long, Talitha. I finally got all the pictures together for it. Lance

I think one thing that needs to be clarified is the mill. Almost everything happens at the mill and I’m sure we’ve mentioned it over and over again in the posts. What would come to the mind of a typical Hutterite, would be a mill to mix feed for livestock. Being a typical ....
