Day 106: Friday 18 February 2011.  Miramar Hotel, Limbe, Cameroon.  N04 00.712 E009 12.001  Distance driven 36 km
After a relaxed morning of Internet and local shopping we drove down the mountain to Limbe on the coast and camped at the Miramar Hotel on the waterfront.  There we met up again with the Oasis truck and our many friends.
The Miramar is in a delightful setting with no beach but with the sea washing up against the sea wall and a swimming pool in front of the hotel.  Out to sea there are several islands and the whole area is dense forest vegetation.  It is situated adjacent to the Botanical Gardens and the Wildlife Centre is only 10 minutes walk away.
We heard of a good restaurant at the Wildlife Centre and found it to be run by a South African, Erika, and her husband, Ryan, a Cameroonian.  We had delicious salads and steaks and an entertaining evening with Ryan and Erika discussing their life in Cameroon.
