Street views: the continuous marketplace

A colorful display of lamps and towels Along the roads of Douala and on the way to the Western part of Cameroon, there are shops and market stands galore. Sometimes the road seems to be one uninterrupted marketplace. These are some of the  pictures I snapped from car windows, on the go. Oranges, hardware and more... I loved her headdress! Perhaps a daycare center? In the baskets: mystery. The kiosk: for cell phone refills. Even the historic Mandessi Bell House (below) in downtown Douala has become a market.... Grilled peanuts are sold in recycled whiskey bottles Apples and more Bread loaves and bobolo  (thick fermented cassava sticks, usually eaten in central Cameroon)
