And on a humorous note, here are pictures and a poem from a friend of ours about the many multitudes of mold in Buea. Enjoy! :D
|This lamp in our room is covered with mold. We should leave it turned on more often.|
|This tree looks like it has leprosy.|
|This is a friends bathroom sink- she cleaned it a week ago.|
|This is mold that Hannah found under our dining room chair.|

A/N: This poem is a parody based on his popular verse One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
MOLD, by Trixy Franke,
Small mold big mold green mold blue mold
Black mold orange mold old mold new mold
Some are pink and some are brown. Some are up and some are down.
Some are plaid and some are rad. And some are very, very bad.
Why are they plaid and rad and bad? I don't know. Go ask your dad.
Some are fluffy and some are slimy. Slimy one appears quite grimy.
From there to here, from here to there, creepy molds everywhere.
Here are some who grow on socks. They grow below on the wet, wet rocks.
Oh me! Oh my!
Oh me! Oh my!
Too many fungi meet the eye.
Some have long hair and some have short.
Some have fuzz and some have a wart.
Where do they grow from?
I can’t say.
But I bet it's not so very far away.
We see them come.
We wish they'd go.
Some grow fast.
And some grow slow.
Some grow high.
And some grow low
Not one of them is like another.
Don't ask us why.
Go ask your mother.
|We've had this pillow for a month before mold started overtaking it. If you come to visit us we will get you a different pillow.|
|My favorite backpack has started to mold.|
|This okra was fine and fresh 2 days before this pic was taken.|
|These doggy bones were molded when my friend opened the box.|
|Moldy walls and ceilings are common in Buea.|
|2 weeks ago a beautiful flower was in this jar.|
|Moldy table cloth.|
|Mold and fungi is taking over this wall.|
|Pretty fungi on a leaf.|
|Mold growing inside my friends cabinet.|
|Another pic of pretty fungi.|
