I went on my first out-of-town trip to do two site visits. The first stop was at the Embassy Branch Office in Douala, where we get a lot of support for our shipping and customs operations. Minimal U.S. citizen services are also available. The second stop on the trip was Mutengene to visit the lab renovation project for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Driving to and from Casino, a French Grocery Store Chain
Driving here is certainly an experience. I didn't get pictures in the grocery store, but there was a little boy who decided he would be helpful and report to me (in French) that our car had been hit while we were shopping. There was no damage to the car. I didn't like the fact that I had to get an Xterra, I am loving that SUV more and more each day.

Snow in Northern Virginia
Today was the first (and probably last) big snow of the winter. I guess the groundhog was right. I apologize for calling him a liar too soon. Several of us engaged in some friendly snowball warfare, which explains the last picture. Won't see snow at all where I'm headed in three weeks, so I'm enjoying it as much as I can.
