Time goes by fast. It really does. Today marks my last Friday in Douala for the year of 2014. So much has happened since I came home for what was supposed to be a two week break, and which turned into a two (2!!!) months escapade. I saw an important door shut in my face in May, but everything just turned out for the best in the end. Next fall I will be attending the Graduate school of my dreams and probably moving to another state. Of course, I will get into more details about the upcoming life changes a little bit later. Right now, I just want to enjoy the last few days I have left here, and looking back at the few shots I took here and there with my iPhone, I realize that I have had quite a good - resting time in Douala. I have taken full advantage of this break to be creative - baking, drawing/painting and writing again. I am not sure all those activities will please my professor, but I couldn't resist the distraction. Plus spending time with family and friends, playing all day with our dog Lucy, staring at the wilderness of the city/country, reading until my eyes hurt, sleeping in, listening to the tropical rain and indulging in local/mom's food... could life really be any sweeter?

Sometimes you just need less to feel more. 

And here is to more.

Love, Colette

    1. Thank you, Jasmine! It really warms my heart all the nice things you've written here :) I guess, as I grow older I realize that life is more enjoyable than what we tend to believe. As for a picture of Lucy, i will share one with you once I find a good one ;)
