HoboTraveler.com Goes to West Africa 2010
I said to a friend,
"I need to go to Africa…"
"I need something to look forward too."

My Visa came from Washington, D.C. by FedEx yesterday --- with a sigh of relief, I knew my bags were packed, I would be ready. I will go to Ivory Coast on Sunday, September 5, 2010 the deal is closed, signed, there is a meeting of the minds, you cannot stop me, I am escaping.



This plane trip to West Africa is roughly 30 hours of "Seat Time," I will be sitting around waiting to arrive, a Travelers needs to be patient.

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you
- Toto

I am planning this trip, to fly to Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire September 5, 2010 - Then by land to Liberia -- Sierra Leone -- Guinea -- Guinea Bissau -- Cape Verde - The Gambia -- Senegal -- Mauritania --- Morocco Adventure

I am not sure, maybe going across the DRC Congo would be more exciting, but this trip is unfolding well, I feel confident and exited for a change. There is a saying,
"No Risk, No Rush."

What is Adventure?

Hmm, it feels to be something that makes people angry, it is troubling to understand, however when I say, "I am going to Africa," the replies I receive annoy me.
"Why would you go to Africa?"

What I have to say is,
"Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you"

When I am in Africa, I want to leave, a month after I leave Africa, I start to obsess and dream about returning, there is no clear path, only when I leave the path am I at home and comfortable in my skin.

Thanks for following along, we are going to Africa, and always remember, when you reach the edge of the planet, "There be Dragons."

Lyrics by Toto - Africa

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancinet melodies
He turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you

CHORUS:
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serangetti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

CHORUS
(Instrumental break)

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa

Toto Africa, maybe not blocked
