African Explorer Book. by tucsonmike on 17 September 2009 8:38pm
 
Well, I am writing like mad and I reckon, I might dedicate it to Mr. P.

Hmmm...Research at the British Library and Royal Geographic Society? A major hardship eh? :)

Mike, what I would love to see is a book about Africans who have come to the west and 'explored' the west, seeing their reaction to the strangeness of western culture and society in comparison to their own. This could be looked at historically as well as in the eyes of present day Africans encountering western society for the first time. How about writing that book next?

Sounds good.

Now there would be something different. Africans discovering the West.
My Sudanese friends said when they first encountered salad, they referred to it as "The green thing Americans eat, that they don't cook." They were shocked to see men and women holding hands in the airport. It would be unique.

I have visions in the book I am writing now, with the Africans shaking their heads, crying, my goodness, those white folks are quite mad! :)

Go on Mike, do it. So many African Explorer books have been written, time to get it from a new angle, maybe in collaboration with your Sudanese friends.
