A week-end in the land of the “SW” cars (for “South-West”), in the South-West region, 44 miles from Douala (even if this region is located a bit at the North of Douala or the Ocean region, it’s still called “South-West”).
Limbe is a small city on the coast, at the bottom of Mount Cameroon, right between ocean and volcano. Volcano I said. Mount Cameroon is one of it, with a peak at 13,400 feet (note this for later), still active (even if asleep at this moment). Its last lava flow dates back to 1999 (not so long ago) and left some traces that are still visible: the road from Limbe to the West is still cut by a dry spit of basalt of around ten meters height.
Limbe, and the black sand beach
The lava spit
Quick stop on the way back to Douala. Natural site: the lava spit going down from Mount Cameroon.
New picture on the road. I don’t really know why, but I love these pictures. Opening, movement, spirit of discovery, of unknown, of not knowing what awaits around the corner…
Who knows, maybe they will be part of some kind of collection one day.
