The Dam

Mbakaou is the site of a giant dam.  At first I thought my regular electricity was due to it since it is run by the electric company.  Turns out they use it to control the water flow for one of their dams downstream.  All they same; they have to keep it running and that means they keep me running.  Thanks guys!

This is the monster from the lake side.  Picture doesn't really do it credit.

That's one of our lovely fishermen out on the river.  It's probably the biggest thing I've seen in country.

Here is the river side from the top.  You can see my village off to the right.  Or some of the shiny metal roofs.
