Next Day
Our last day in Nigeria. We camped near the northeastern border with Cameroon, near a town called Madeguire. Despite dire predictions and its awful reputation, Nigeria stands as a West African highlight. It's never boring. It's extreme Africa. Where else can you see people brandishing machine guns in a traffic jam, or watch turbaned riders dance in colorful finery at the end of Ramadan, or meet overly inquisitive policemen?
Misty mornings, dusty afternoons, and red skies at dusk.
Where can I find McDonalds?
