My director approved my ISP title today. Here it is – The French Franc and the CFA: What’s in it for Cameroon? I am actually excited to explore this topic. However, I have to do a lot of work to make it happen. I already have an important political figure and economist that I am going to interview, Hubert Kamgang. He is also a candidate at the Cameroonian 2011 presidential elections that will be held in October. I also have an advisor already, which is super exciting. I need to conduct interviews with economic professors and econ major students. I will be sending out a bunch of emails and making phone calls in the coming weeks. The IDI project presentation is next week and I have two papers to write for that with my partner. One paper is on the methodology and the other one on what we found during our research. I will be staying in Yaoundé during my ISP. So far, I still love my homestay in Ngaoundere. I like hanging out with my little host sister and just talking with the family because they are not acting like they want something from me. I do not know what goodbye gift to get them but I will figure it out. I am glad my host brother is away but he comes back tomorrow and he will start asking me about my SIT group going on a tourism trip with him. He forgets that we are students and not rich tourists.
