Description du livre Wordclay, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Drawn from the author s personal experiences and told in a humorous and anecdotal fashion, it tells of the dramas and humour involved in working over a period of fifteen years in more than a dozen countries all over Africa-from Nigeria, Ghana, and francophone countries such as Senegal and Ivory Coast in the west; to Egypt, Tunisia, and Algeria in the north; and Kenya, Uganda, and Zambia in the copper belt in the east. All the Beautiful Strangers is a book for old Africa hands, aspiring Afrophiles and those who want their fears about travelling in that continent, especially by air, reaffirmed. Interspersed with descriptions of sites of natural beauty, such as the sacred place of a river god in Nigeria to the modern reproduction of St. Peter s in Rome in Yamoussoukro, it describes being held at gunpoint at Kinshasa airport by unpaid military in Zaire, of arrest by police in Nigeria, and gunfire in Algiers at the start of the civil war. In between these dramatic episodes, there are tales telling of the drama of everyday life for the vast majority of Africans who continue to suffer from the economic disadvantage that is endemic in the region and the impact it has on them. We journey from the source of the Blue Nile in Uganda to the wonders of Cairo, through which it runs on its journey to the sea, and from the spectacle of the Victoria Falls to the arid safari scenery in Kenya. It is meant to be an entertaining read for those who love to travel as well as those who like to read about travel and adventure. All the Beautiful Strangers will draw nods of recognition and smiles from those who will recognize the situations, places, and people described. N° de réf. du libraire AAV9781507900109
