We decided to go to Republic of Mali in Africa. I was not too worried about going to Africa as I had the experience of staying in Nigeria. Four of my old and trusted friends came with me and we also had a Japanese guide who resides in Mali, so I thought this trip was going to be a trouble free trip. However, the two 4WD cars that we rented, which were supposed to be brand new, had all worn out tires and the local drivers we hired drove so fast on the bumpy red gravel roads with the dust rising up. I was trying my best to draw the red African landscapes in my little sketching book in the bouncing car.
