Scenes from Truck Life

Interpretations of an overland trip across Africa

Trolley dolly

Here, a story told by Anne-Dorte about Francis' brave attempt to do the shopping under trying circumstances is retold by Clare. Note that the contents of the trolley -- tomatoes, cucumber and bananas -- were staple foods for the group.


Mike wanted to show how he felt joining us at a later stage of the trip. The 'otherness' of Africa (and by extension the group) is expressed by the exotic Tafel beer sign and the hippo warning. The next cell shows that the expected hippos are subsumed by the night noises of the group. Which one, to the newcomer, is more exotic? The cryptic footer 'Dark side of the dune', suggests that we are not going to be told.
