We also thought we were going in the Gospel Singers' bus,

The lack of space, the hard seats or the loose door did not spoil the joyous mood. Nor finding out that we were not going to Wak after all. Someone important had decided that we were headed for a small place with possibilities to take a swim near the student village Dang (12 km from Ngaoundéré) instead.

we reached a place that resembled any Norwegian beach a random summer day (except that there were no beach): a lot of young people where enjoying a Saturday with friends, food, a bonfire, guitar playing and swimming in the COLD water.
Some hours later, after having crossed the river on our way back, we spent a few moments in prayer and worship together with another choir that also was there,
before we went happy, tired, laughing and singing back to Dang to find taxis going to Ngaoundéré.
In other words: a wonderful Saturday spent with wonderful people!
