No man can help another without helping himself
- Waldo Emerson


Cameroon is an exciting African country. It brims over with energy; it is alive. It is sometimes called Petit Afrique, because in terms of climate and natural beauty, it combines all aspects of Africa in itself.

The country maintains contacts with all the countries by which it is surrounded.

Bertie Hendriks goes to Cameroon twice a year. He reports on his experiences in Bertie about Cameroon. More facts about the country appear in Cameroon in fact.

The Gambia is a small english speaking country on the west coast of Afrika, completely enclosed by it french speaking neighbor Senegal. It is one of the poorest countries in the world. Agriculture and tourisme arre the most important means of income.
