01/07/2013 - Route : Mamfe -> Eyumojock -> Mamfe

Go fishing in the region of Eyumojock, on the West Mamfe, is not so obvious. The day objective is (among others) to go to collect some Fundulopanchax gardneri lacustris around the lake Ejagham. For that purpose, Cyrille brings us to see the leader of the village to whom belongs the lake. This one gives us the authorization to its place of residence around a very warm coffee with milk! He decides even to accompany us during day.
On the way (departure 10 hours of Mamfe after long discussions), we stop towards Akwen. Surprise: we fish for Chromaphyosemions! The day begins well.
We continue until Eyumojock to discuss with the local authorities to obtain their "blessing". And there problem! Not having of real and official orders and having to discuss during more than 2 hours with 1, then 2, then 3 persons, it is necessary us to return to Mamfe to obtain other papers to return then to Eyumojock.
Not having time, we decide to leave, with some regrets. We return to Mamfe by making 2 additional points. In the evening, we find the leader "to thank" him having to make the changes of water of 35 already present bags. We shorten our stay to Mamfe, to return us from tomorrow to Kumba, by way of Tinto and Takwai.
