I was helping make hamburgers and fries with some other Volunteers for some of our Cameroonian friends while visiting my regional capital. I love children here and this young girl seemed amiable enough that I could approach her. She didn’t quite get the fist bump so it turned into a one finger and thus, voila, E.T. phone home!

This photo captures pretty perfectly the feelings I experienced as a PCV. Confusing/Exciting/Crazy/Happy chaos all around me.
