Changes

On all of our previous trips to Cameroon, we marveled at how little had changed since our previous visit. This time, we are constantly caught off guard by what is different. So many buildings have been torn down and new ones put up that we tend to get disoriented and confused when driving through town. Women's dress has also changed. We see many women of all ages and socioeconomic levels wearing pants in public. (I would still feel guilty doing so, although I suspect that that will change over the next few months.) I have even seen several women wearing sleeveless dresses in church, a change I will welcome if it turns out to apply across the board. (Seeing something here or there, doesn't mean that it's okay for middle-aged, Christian women.)
