This is a site of stories and images I gathered as I travelled from Dakar to Abidjan in the spring of 1999. All of these pages were composed and sent online as I travelled -- using a small sony laptop and canon digital camera that I carried with me in my backpack. To my surprise, getting internet connections even in the remotest villages was not a problem.

I'm adding these stories as I go, about one or two a week. They're generally following my route, and consist of collections of photographs with a short description. Some are quite verbose, others are just pictures -- but generally they deal with the places that I'm encountering.
