Flying Cows of Africa: Travel Stories from Around the World
Leave the world of high gas prices, unemployment, deflated 401k accounts, failing banks, the gloom and doom of twenty-four-hour news, and take a journey to distant lands. You won't need your passport to experience the trip of a lifetime! Flying Cows of Africa: Travel Stories from Around the World is a humorous look at independent backpacking in the third world. These stories range from the strange to the bizarre and, at times, surreal events that the author experienced as he traveled in rural areas in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and a few places in between. You'll be on the edge of your seat as you read about an intense African village trial, cows gliding in the air past your eyes, an up-close account of a wild lion attack, a blood-soaked ancient sacrificial funeral ritual, comical events in the deserts of India, and the banishment of Tupac from Tunisia. The author views his travels through his childhood binoculars, backward, of course, as he writes about the wondrous, magical, and bizarre experiences that can only happen with a backpack, a good pair of walking shoes, and a sense of curiosity. The author takes life as it comes at him from every corner.
