    1. As far as adventure books go, this is great. Lots of unforeseeable situations, some dramatic, some beautiful. Definitely I feel I know a bit more about the black continent.

    2. This book is Part I and covers the first month of their trip. I enjoyed the glimpses into their experiences in Morocco.
