It may seem like I’m unfairly singling out Cameroon for this, and I know many states in Africa and the Middle East that are just as bad for it, but I got tapped for so many bribes in Cameroon that it tops my naughty list for places where they freak the hell out if they spot you taking a photo. Of pretty much anything. Military bases, train stations, bridges, policemen, border crossings… I once got arrested for shooting a video of a roundabout. And don’t think this is a phenomena restricted to developing nations – I’ve been told off for filming a tunnel in my hometown of Liverpool, the London Underground, an Irish ferry port, out the window of a Greyhound bus in America and made to wipe footage I shot of myself on a train in Sicily. So be careful! My advice? If you see a jobsworth in a uniform anywhere in the world, put your swanky Canon 7D away and use the camera on your phone instead.

Cameroon is what I always dreamed West Africa to be with lush jungles, tiny villages, and vibrant market places. After visiting so many, it remains one of my favorite African countries.
