In Santiago de Cuba; you are either traveling up hill or down hill.
Compared to La Habana, Santiago is cleaner, quieter and more picturesque.
Mountains are everywhere, glimmering in the distance.
This started as a video, then accidentally the slo-mo setting was activated.
Pardon the change in pace.
Slo-mo is only fun when we are doing the business 😉

Tuesday afternoon, November 15.
The U.S. election upset was in the news. At a routine check point, soldiers had jokes for my U.S. Passport.
The next day when sharing the jokes with Mr. Honey Muse, he said that Trump jokes were not funny.
Well in hindsight, guess not perhaps one week after was still too soon.
Tuesday morning, November 15.
On the way to the bus station, to get the bus to Douala.
We get the unscripted tour of the landscape.
The hustle is real. We are in good company
Cellular credit vendors.
This is Africa, creativity is thriving, people are making it happen.

Locally grown culture is real.
Edith Rose’s birthdate.
Full Moon Taurus.
Night drive around Mont Fébé.
Protocol is everything.
Time to Learn.
First Sunday in Cameroon – Day 4
Road trip: Douala to Yaoundé
The days were full; movement in the day, meetings and lessons at night.
In total the journey on the ground was a full 26 days. Information overload was the norm.
Some days I was nodding during lessons, but trust I was paying attention.
Twenty six days of growth and learning. Cultural immersion at its best.
My mantra was, I Am In Africa.
Saying I Am In Africa once a day, always with smile, helped to keep my teeth white.
There is a six hour time difference between the East coast and Cameroon, which means that since arriving my sleep has been choppy.
You know, I fall asleep on EST but still wake up in local time with everyone else.
Or I fall asleep at a reasonable local time, then wake up at EST evening time.
Jet lag is a a beast, but I did take a cat nap though, on the drive to Yaoundé.
Yet despite the resetting of my body clock, I am hanging tough.
This picture was taken at the FENAC Festival.
Wow, Wonderful, WOW!!!
Great atmosphere, fabulous Art, excellent live music and beautiful people.
So I posed with the sculptures of the Mother and the Invisible Lady.
Yeah, I was diggin’ everything about this FENAC Festival scene.
After the festival we went for a Sunday evening visit with our Padrino.
Then to the grill space for dinner.
Day Two, – Orientation – A Tribe Called Quest released the 2 CD set, We got it from Here…Thank You 4 Your service
Day Three – Exploration, Planning, Tributes.
On the ground, introduction and adjustment to Douala, the time zone, Sawa culture, protocol and traditions.
These were memorable days, filled with many firsts and the grooving rhythms of the latest ATCQ sounds.
Multi story floor plans, brick masonry facade, balconies, elaborate ironwork, border walls and gates are typical decorative ornamentation that are popular characteristics of modern architectural design in Douala.
Pictured on the lower left is a man washing his hands at a water spigot. It is customary for affluent property owners to provide a water spigot for public use, outside the gates of the property.
Many apartment houses are mixed use family compound; income property. Many upscale apartment houses enjoy impressive monthly rental revenues and appear to be sound real estate investments.
Preservation of Sawa culture, lineage and traditions is competitive sport. Sawa villages in Douala, host competitions in pursuit of excellence and recognition at the annual Ngondo Festival, first Sunday in December.
Yes! Right on!
