A close up of a photograph ...
This advert is from Tatler and is dated June 1932. "It was first thought of by Madame Maria Hornes .... while observing the wonderful rejuvenating action on the skin's texture of Radium Springs baths at a continental spa." Image

In initial few days of Cameroon part of our Cameroon-Chad-Niger-Nigeria study. If Chad was full of sand and driving through the Sahara & Nigeria was, well, Nigeria, Cameroon so far is all about the mud. In the drive from Maroua-Maga this morning, I was so sure we’d get stuck...
Loading bags of rice on boats to Ndjaména in Chad.
Most rice produced in Maga (in Cameroon’s Far North) used to go to Nigeria - but cross border trade has been severely affected by insecurity. All the farmers I met complained of impact of conflict on export of rice cultivated.
Had such a good conversation with the Sultan of Pouss. Told me how French colonisers forced the people of the region to cultivate rice-but forbade them from eating. If you wanted to cause problems for someone, you’d grow rice outside someone’s compound so they’d get into trouble.
