Dahomey, 1913. French West Africa (French: Afrique occidentale française, AOF) was a federation of eight French colonial territories in Africa: Mauritania, Senegal, French Sudan (now Mali), French Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso), Dahomey (now Benin) and Niger. The capital of the federation was Dakar. The federation existed from 1895 until 1960.
Poulet Yassa (Senegalese chicken dish.) I first had this when my middle school french teacher, who taught in Dakar, made it for the class. She was not the best teacher but at least I learned something :)
Located in West Africa, Cameroon is any adventurer’s dream. Nicknamed “Africa in miniature”, the bi-lingual (French and English) country offers an active volcanic mountain, lush equatorial jungles (the 1984 adaptation of Tarzan was filmed there!), white and black sand beaches, a myriad of wildlife, and, perhaps most importantly, a people with extremely diverse cultural backgrounds.
