Some time has now passed since my last footsteps in Africa yet the one man travel plan lives on as I try to write up my experiences and hone my travel writing talents with the aim of publishing and funding more odessies of curiosity.

As well as the writing side I am organsing exhibitions of photgraphs and paintings from my trip, partly for their asthetic beauty and partly so I can share and hopefully inform people about some lesser known parts of the world.

And then there is always the next trip... the journey never ends.

Timbuctou and the Tuareg

Inside a Tuareg tent: during the heat of the day there is little else to do but take it easy

Hundreds of years old manuscipts in Timbuctou which was a renowned ancient seat of learning

Hello people. I apologise for the downward trend in output for this blog. This is due to periods of hectic travel, followed by periods spent away from Internet access, followed by strange illnesses. None of this has been helped by the harsh heat of Subsaharan Africa or the slow Internet connections.

Bearing these factors in mind I realise I haven't even finished the last entry, but am keen to publish whatever time and energy will permit. So here are some more pretty pictures.

Ill fill in all the gaps and write things up as an when I get the chance. Honest.

Magical moments ensued when I showed the kids of the desert my camcorder and even my guide book for West Africa which they were engrossed by for a good half hour
