the nature of the beast the whereabouts of a peace corps volunteer in the west region of Cameroon.

the nature of the beast


I arrived back to the States in August of 2013. I have relocated to the vibrant city of New Orleans and for the past year I have been working in advertising, eaten my weight in King Cake and have fested my way down the pot-holed streets of the Big Easy. I am currently in search of the best fried shrimp po-boy.

This blog held the stories and images I came across during my adventures in Cameroon, Africa working for the Peace Corps. It was a resource for friends and family to follow my whereabouts, and anyone else who may have stumbled upon me. I served for 27 months beginning in June of 2011 teaching Computer Literacy and English in Bandenkop, Cameroon.

[Please disregard this list of things to mail me as I am no longer in Cameroon, I am just keeping it here for nostalgia]

**it helps to decorate it in bible verses, crosses and fish. Also addressing it to sister kimberly koelling or return address being a church helps! And insure it if you can. This way hopefully nothing gets stolen. :)
