My dear friend, we appreciate your pictures of Cameroon, but in the Douala section, I just want to say that it is a great insult to say Douala was founded by Alfred Saker. Douala was there even in in the late 1500s when the Portugese first saw the river wouri and dubbed it Rio dos Kamoros, from which the name Cameroon came. Alfred Saker was simply a missionary that came to Douala and corresponded what he saw to mother Europe, perhaps with embellishments such as I founded Douala. Please lets get the historical facts straight if we want to include them. Let me also remind you that the King of Douala (Douala Manga Bell) did write a letter to Queen Victoria, inviting England to come and create a relationship with Douala, when he heard that Britain had a post in Lagos, Nigeria. However the Germans beat the British to Douala and that is how Cameroon became a colony of Germany, during the scramble for Africa in the late 1800s. The name Kamerunstadt was probably issued to reprimand the King of Douala. In fact the current capital of Cameroon is Yaounde because of the poor relationship of the Dualas and the Germans. As you will note most West African capitals are on the coast, because that is where slaves were shipped off and where the Europeans first came. I do include with this point of correction my compliments on your pictures and the layout of your site. My point of correction is also directed at us all and not to you in particular, because in subtle ways we continue to view Africa as function of Europe.

Points taken and some corrections are made to the page. Thanks

Great site and great concept!

Can't add much to what others have said. Those pictures were vivid and concise. You have inspired me a great deal.

I just went through your Cameroun pictures - the best mental travel I've ever had. For an hour, I really felt that I was there, smelling it, feeling the rain on my (black) skin, jumping over those wet streets, traveling in a yellow taxi in Yaounde, feeling the haze, the sand in Kribi...

I am happy to recommend your website to all Africa lovers

I am a college student in Seattle and am currently taking an African literature class. We just finished reading, The Poor Christ of Bomba, by Mongo Beti (fabulous!). We were asked to do some research on Cameroon. I found the information and pictures on your website to be EXTREMELY USEFUL, well organized and very easy to navigate. Thank you for taking the time to create and maintain this site.

Henning Juul, Danmark 01-01-1970 00:00:00

Hej Jacob

Dejligt at se billeder fra Cameroun - har selv gode minder fra et 1/2 års safariophold i 98

Joy Frances Saker, New Zealand 01-01-1970 00:00:00

I was fascinated to find out about Alfred Saker, the Baptist Missionary from London. In 1948, John Henry Saker, his wife Frances and daughter Joy immigrated to South Africa. John had wanted to go to Africa from an early age. I wonder if he remembered stories of a missionary relation?

Greatings from Belgium,
Just some words from a Belgian painter who really appreciated your website. It's amazing to me to think how truly small the world is sometimes. Thanks to the internet I've been able to meet a selection of wonderful people from Arabia.

My father worked for your country and he was very happy.
I wish you that 2003 will be also a prosperous year for the countries and Arabia people

I would be deeply grateful if you would please take a short time to see my website http://users.belgacom.net/topart/. You will see some artworks and have your personal opinion.

Thank you
