Returning …. let me show you around!

We have been back in Cameroon for the last four months.  The time has flown by and one of the activities I chose to sacrifice to maintain sanity was this blog.  However with the return of the Noren family last month, and the subsequent easing of my teaching load, it is now possible for a return for the Stoker Stories blog.  And there are a few stories to tell.  But first let me show you around our new home.

When we left Cameroon our apartment was just being finished – well everything but a kitchen and bathroom.

Just before our return in late July, both the kitchen and bathroom were mostly finished.

The first week in August we hosted a staff potluck dinner to “break-in” our new home.

Since then a few new items have been added – like curtains (that match) in the living areas, shelves and another cupboard in the kitchen and planters along the front.  We have also added grass, which is filling in better than expected due to our long wet rainy season, and stepping stones to our screened in porch.  A front porch and planters now make the front door look like it is one, although in rainy season we are using the porch entrance to control mud.

Just down the hill from our house is the newly completed and occupied duplex.
