Sunset on Mount Cameroon
As I wander around the world, I see myself lost in my thoughts while looking at the sunset on Mount Cameroon.The view is simply stunning and the memory to be cherished forever.
Ascending and travelling through life
Life is a wonderful journey. One must go through each day as if she was hiking : it is a mix of enjoying the sight and what life has to offer and effort to make it to the top.

"Sustained economic growth in Africa has produced for the first time a broad middle class, one that cuts across the continent and is on par with the size of the middle classes in the billion-person emerging markets of China and India. The rise of a middle class in the world's poorest continent is a dramatic marker for the global economy. At a time when the U.S., Europe and Japan are struggling to grow, Africa is beginning to beckon as a consumer of what other nations produce, thanks in part to a young population more upwardly mobile than ever before."
"These new consumers are credited with cushioning Africa from the recent global economic crisis. The International Monetary Fund projects that sub-Saharan Africa, a collection of 47 countries, will grow 5.5% this year and 6% in 2012"
"About 100,000 of the richest Africans had a collective net worth totaling 60% of the continent's gross domestic product, according to the report, citing 2008 figures."
