I am well aware of how dangerous Africa is Redjay. The world seems to be more dangerous every day unfortunately. Very sad because there are such wonderful places to see and people to meet in this world. America does not appear to be so safe anymore either. A young man was just beaten to death (Not expected to live in intensive care I believe) in Chicago. A person should be careful at all times in this world today.
I was pulled out of my car at gunpoint by the Colombian military on a dirt road in a small village one time. But I soon became friends with them and we laughed and joked about my desperate attempt to use sign language to explain what I was doing alone in Colombia. Just one of the many memories I cherish.
Life is just to durn short to just sit around and work a 9 to 5 job everyday for a lousy 3 week vacation.
I hope you understand what I am saying and get a chance to get out and explore life.
Oh yeah…And Africa is something like 13000 miles around the perimeter I think. Not such a long ride at all actually.
