There is a strong possibility that I may be heading back to Africa for the third time in four years. I've had the pleasure to explore Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa. I truly enjoyed Windhoek in Namibia. My next adventure to the 2nd largest continent with the 2nd greatest level of population looks to be Cameroon. The port city of Douala will be my home base. According to my limited research, this city is home to 1.3 million and the surrounding region swells to 3.0 million. I'm just starting to investigate the area. I know they have a heck of a soccer team. If anyone can share any other tidbits or helpful hints, I'd appreciate it!
The only western chain hotel that I've found so far is a Le Meridien by Starwood that has terrible reviews. I wonder if our friends at Marriott can brick and mortar me a place by November?
