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.
