A first week discovering Douala, its inhabitants, its pulse, its heat, its activity … and a first week-end out of the city. Direction: Kribi, little city near the Ocean in the South-West region, main city of the department of … the Ocean. Yes, it’s the name of the department, of the district. I like it!

And for that 16 pictures worth more than more words (more than the one that are already above …) … well, a first travel, 110 miles away from Douala.
