You’re in Africa Now !

You're in Africa Now!(auf Umschlagbild klicken)
„I have to say that it was heartbreaking to leave my lovely apartment in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Not only did I have a stable job with generous vacation time, dishes that matched, a closet full of swank outfits – in short, all the things one is supposed to have – but I was even surrounded by like-minded liberal types who shared many of my own values. Oddly, however, I was dissatisfied and decided in favor of a drastic change.

The upshot? I applied for a teaching position and am now living in an apartment with cold running water only, white plastic garden furniture in the kitchen and a foam mattress to complete my bliss. The apartment – and the teaching gig – are located in Dakar, Senegal. Yes, I do mean West Africa, about as far away from NYC as you can get in any number of ways. “
