it's 3 PM in the afternoon, I am enjoying my cup of hot cocoa drink, glazing out of my window, I see pouring rainstorm. It's been the whole week like this afternoon, rainstorm and thunderstorm.
Historically, the anglophone regions of NW and SW Cameroon were under the rule of the British and of minorities, not like the French ruled francophone regions, where the government allocates more capital and resources for development. The two Anglophone regions only reunited with the Republic of Cameroon in the 70s. Maybe because of the historical background, people from the SW region are more opened to challenges, inflow of different cultures and welcoming. "Although we have all the resources, oil, rich soil, the forests, it's sad that there are no supports like technical development (machines), people simply are not aware of the economic value of all these resources!"

We tracked back from noon, and on the way we saw trees with high medical value "Celesediscust", the locals use the tree bark to make tea to heal malaria, typhoid and fever.
