The market Bamenda
The market Bamenda, one of the most important cities of Northwest Cameroon, it’s one of the largest. Streets and alleys full of all kinds of goods of that day were of this pleasant town a meeting of people, fun and very lively! One of those streets whose pavement turn to mud in the rainy season, and dust in the dry season, was full of hairdressers. It is hilarious to see them all under a wooden roof, with its chairs, serving clients in the middle of the row that caused themselves with laughter and conversations.
Bamenda’s Dreamland Restaurant
Bamenda’s Dreamland doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside it’s a well-set-out establishment with a large menu. There’s a daily lunchtime buffet (CFA3500 per person) and a choice of grills, salads, fish and soups the rest of the time.
