(from Facebook–Peace Corps Cameroon page:

Below is the story of Education Volunteer Danny Thomas, who currently serves in Yang, a village of the Boyo Division, in the North-West region of Cameroon. Read Danny’s testimonial and enjoy the photos.

“A couple weeks ago I got to be a Juju dancer at a cry-die. It took a bit of work to make it happen. And there was a pretty intense debate about whether I could even be allowed to do it since it would clearly disrupt the anonymity surrounding Juju dancers (since Jujus are traditionally said to be spirits, not people). But it happened and was a blast! I was told by many people that I made Kom history and that I’m the first white person ever to dance Juju in Kom.”
