Description from Amazon: This is an account of a medical doctor’s experiences in Tanzania where he came “to the grimmest possible conclusion about Africa’s future”. In search of some cause for hope he set out to travel home across the continent by train, bus, lorry, boat and canoe. Sharply observant, he catalogues the oppression, corruption, ignorance and poverty he finds. In the end it is in his good humoured and pragmatic travelling companions that he finds hope for the future. He concludes that the only quality that sustains Africans in the face of poverty and hopelessness is their innate cheerfulness. The author also wrote “Coups and Cocaine”.
