I am thinking about Africa, about going back, or perhaps its better to say, about going in the first place. I don’t knkow if this plan will come to fruition but I’m creating a short-list of countries. The theme for my trip would “Islam in sub-saharan Africa” (non surprise there) and I would go to 3 countries
So I would go to
Senegal- Ghana-Nigeria (but I am scared, perhaps wrongfully so of going to NIgeria alone. The thought of arriving in Lagos airport seems so daunting my heart race quickens just thinking about it).
Sengal-Gambia- Sierra Leone (but this would not be much more than a ploy to chill in Sa-lone,
Mali-Senegal-Gambia (Mali scares me too because I don’t speak French and don’t know how I would get by)
Djibouti (would be chance to get another crack at Somali—funnily enough I miss it, I might re-start my studies and crack open that Martin Orwin book)- Ethiopia (get a crack at that Muslim majority/minority – Senegal.
senegal, Kenya (Nairobi seems as daunting as Lagos though), Rwanda? (once again, not a lick of french can I speak,… I do know how say “a little” “I don’t understand (french)” “I don’t speak (French)” …lol
hmmm, decisions, decisions. Oh well, its only a blue-print for now.
where do YOU think I should go?
