CAR Photo Essay (Central African Republic)

I personally have not yet made it to Central African Republic, but a few years ago my brother Ammon did. Here are his words on the experience.

“In CAR I was in the border town of Gamboula. It ended up being a day trip from Cameroon. It was cut short because the country was in a state of security deterioration and it was unsafe to continue further. I didn’t have the time anyway as I’d have to backtrack to Cameroon as well. I ended up visiting a Missionary compound (through a contact I had with the missionaries I stayed with in Chad). The American family there was very nice and had me stay for lunch, showed me around the stuff they were doing and then I left again. It’s very poor and undeveloped there and has gotten more unstable since I left.”

Enjoy this #FRIDAYFOTOS photo Essay of Central African Republic!
