Aladji, a very important notable and development agent, is Angels (my fellow Texan PCV)best friend in Bangou, and so I took part in the celebration of the death of of his father that happened last year. Funeral celebrations in the West, Bamilike province, are always a joyous and elaborate experience filled with food, wine, dancing and tradition that I would not want to miss! I have absolutely never enjoyed a funeral so much!
