Saturday was our first excursion to Bamenda, a city of 250,000 about an hours drive from St. Martin de Porres Hospital.  We were able to shop at the two supermarkets, The Vatican and New Life.  We managed to pick up a few things that remind us of home, like Kellogg's Corn Flakes as well as a couple of luxury items.  I now have a mirror above the sink, and it's red frame is a bonus.

There is no doubt that the highlight of the trip however was eating at the Dreamland Bar and Restaurant.  We had our first truly American food in a month.  We had a hamburger and french fries.  The hamburger was chicken, as the restaurant was out of beef but it was delicious.  We gave the restaurant our five star seal of approval.  We also made a brief stop at the open air market before getting on the road in order to make it home before dark.  I am sure that we will dream of a return to Dreamland sometime in the future.
