The Art of Travel in West Africa
Truly, I have no clear explanation of what that title is suppose to mean, yet I know this, it is cliché enough to be said by a Travel Writer, we are the champions of cliché writing. The truth is travel is just living life while moving from location to location, trying to minimize the discomfort.

Art is the skill or ability to do something well.
The Art of Travel is to make decisions that are obviously good. There are people who want to come to Africa to save Africa, I think they should come to Africa to be saved.
