Photographer's Note

Still the Ngondo festival I told you about. A great annual festival took place in Douala this week-end. It is called the Ngondo festival and it gathers all the Sawa people (people from the coast).

Many events have been surrounding this animist celebration dedicated to the "Jengu" or "Ondine", the gods from the Wouri river : dances from each tribes of the City, traditional fighting, a traditional Miss election, etc...

Here, this is the start from the traditionnal race. a dozens of boats are competing on the Wouri river during a 30 minutes race. Unfortunately, right after the start, 2 boats drowned close from the shore creating a mix of burst of anger and laughs.
