I got a kick out of seeing the new paint job on this house. Most of the homes along the road are dirt colored, either because of mud stucco or mud brick, without embellishment. You occasionally will see random splashes of white or even a bit of artwork on the mud. There are more and more homes with tin roofs, but grass/palm leaf thatch is still quite common, so you can understand why this house stood out and made me chuckle. Of course, they have the advantage of living right next door to a newly installed fresh water pump, with a wall around it, painted in, you guessed it, yellow and blue! You go, polka dot painter!
Please take note, all 3 of these homes, in Cameroon, are much better than most homes in C.A.R., so they are not representative of the average Joe’s home where we live.
