A reader wrote me a personal email and referenced Africa as the Holy Grail, a truly interesting proposition. The person is going Africa soon and below is an excerpt from his email, corrected to make easier to read.
“Andy, … you know Africa is the Holy Grail for us Travellers.”
I remember when you were in West Africa, how tight the money is for us folks on a budget. Hoping that I will be able to afford to hang (Africa) long enough to get a real taste
Hoping 09 treats you as it should, and hoping I get to bump into you on the road
Dinner is on me
I have been to Africa three to four times according to how you look at Africa, Morocco and Egypt are more Arabic or part of the Middle East Culture, so I do not include them in my thoughts about Africa.
However, this is the question, is Africa the Holy Grail of Travelers?
