Believe you have made the right decision, if I had the resources I would go with helping Bah get out of hell, being alone on the road for years, you need some company, up and downsides of course, don't complain after Bah arrives, living and travelling with anyone else, including family or close friends, when one is used to going it alone, will have low points, relationships are more difficult than writing books or selling travel gear sometimes, and Bah is a woman from another culture, not a 'travel buddy' from States, I learned with Latin Women, shut my mouth, listen, do not argue, you cannot win.
Sitting in States worrying would be worse, in my opinion. saludos.
Why not go to Rhodesia ? See what happens when Africans take control of a perfectly functioning country that exported food and inported workers at fair wages.
It's amazing what Africans can do if you just give them a turn-key stable country.
and billions in aid.
The weather in Harare is pefect for writing. Spring like clean and Indiana fresh.

Holding a camera while I make a travel tip is a pain in the butt. I have been writing and taking photos for travel tips now for 13 years. The best travel tips take a few days to write.
1. Collect the photos.
2. Collect the ideas or concepts to be included.
3. Start to digest or compile
4. Return and take more photos.
If I am going to be in the Photo, then the camera person has to be willing, ready and able to return with me take photos.That last sentence is the problem. I must have a person who is willing to work with me on a multiple day basis.Plus, being that I refuse to work eight hour days, this would cause a problem. I know that Bah is OK as a camera person.
She took video on top of the Hotel in Elubo.
She took video at entrance to Cape Coast Fort.
I used a girl photographer in Guatemala, she thought she was too smart, and would not allow me to direct the production.
This is about the same as any worker, I need a person that will take instruction, obey me, and can make good in process decisions. The travel tips I am making videos about will be simple, done all withing a 10 meter area.
