A Grand Day Out: Beka Hossere

Beka Hossere is just a short moto ride from Ngaoundere, so a visiting PCV from Senegal and I, decided to visit two of the PCV’s there. Below, a collection of the afternoon’s events.

Other fun facts:

  • Beka Hossere is Fulfuldé for “behind the mountain,” fitting since it is located behind Mt. Ngaoundéré.
  • Papaya “trees” are actually herbs.
  • Banana “trees” are actually grass.
