I’ve come a little bit further in my planning for the western Africa trip. Or let’s say, I’ve done all that I’m going to do apart from sending out couch requests.
I’ve decided to fly from Göteborg straight to London, since I realized last night that if I skip France, I will have another month in Africa, and that thought was too appealing to deny. From London to Morocco by plane and I’m already thinking about all that sick pollution that’s gonna cause. I’ll spend some time there, going to the camel market I missed last time I visited the country.
After Mauritania I will go to Senegal, visiting the Gambia for a couple of days before heading by bus Dakar -> Bamako. And, here’s another new idea, from Bamako there are buses running to Abidjan. How can I turn that down? I can’t. I will fly home from Abidjan, five months after the day my feet touches the streets of London.
