It was one of those days.
This is a story about a woman (me), a case of Tampax, a 1960 Land Rover, and my boyfriend all traveling together across Africa. It's a story of mud, danger, and self-realization (a lot of this) with some cheap Nigerian whiskey, bribes, an angry bull elephant, condoms filled with money, and 56 termite-infested bridges thrown in for added, um, drama.
One cold, foggy San Francisco morning I was unexpectedly asked to make coffee by my boss and I blew a fuse. But he didn’t know it. Little did I know that later that same day I would make a decision that would change my life forever.
And I swear the wine had nothing to do with it.
Thus began the wildest, most daring adventure of my life.
