Yesterday, July 6, 2016, turned out to be a holiday in Cameroon. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the fast of Ramadan, which is a national holiday here in Cameroon. Following a busy morning of surgeries at the hospital, including removing a large benign ovarian tumor, I discovered that at noon we were done for the day. It was a beautiful day here at Mbingo, and the hiking here is amazing. The 16 year old son of another missionary physician offered to guide our family up into the mountains to see the waterfalls from the topside of the waterfalls! The beauty of these lush green mountains speckled with waterfalls is an amazing contrast to our home in Arizona.
This little chameleon wasn't too happy that we discovered him while on our hike. He blended in beautifully with the plants that he called his home.
