Photos from the ‘Other’ Bali – Cameroon

Howdy all, hope this post finds you well. One of the highlights of my time a few years back now in Cameroon was a visit to the village of ‘Bali’. For Australians, ‘Bali’ generally will only ever mean the Indonesian island where we flock in droves. (not me, not yet!) In fact, I would presume very few people in the world outside Cameroon or Africa know about this little village.

It has its charms. It also has its own ‘Fon’ – or King. The ol’ Lonely Planet recommends the village to meet the Fon (who was just leaving as I arrived, got a quick ‘hello’!) and tour the palace, which I did. The palace is interesting, if not that big or amazing.

The village itself is in the most beautifully green area on Earth! There’s a derelict building that I think was supposed to haunted, but basically just a lot of unsealed roads and people living their lives. Which is what it’s all about!

Thanks for stopping by today, please comment, and May the Journey Never End!

  2. Thanks for mentioning the other Bali which I think is better than the big one. Of course being born there means a lot. You did well! But the palace was very Big for a child, you should know. You did not mention the endless festivals and rains which is why it’s so green. Now, you should tell the entire world that Bali junior is at war. I never knew war would visit us. Bali is in the anglophone Cameroon which is at war with Francophone part of Cameroon over marginalisation. Tell the world, Andy.
