Seeing a Slice of Southern Africa My Way is the third in the Seeing The World series, by Tony Giles. It offers a unique insight into travelling in Southern Africa from a blind person’s perspective.
It is a journey of continued self-discovery for the author as he plots his way from multi-cultural South Africa with its complex society, to Malawi, with its picturesque and peaceful nature. This fascinating travel biography takes the reader through parts of Southern Africa, and offers a brief glimpse into a little of Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The history, culture, geography and nature of these nations is described through the author’s other senses and provides an alternative insight to travelling in a fascinating and, somewhat, dangerous region of Africa.
How does the author cope travelling around countries that lack the conventional infrastructures of the UK whilst blind? What skills does he use to tackle the many challenges that are encountered in such impoverished countries like Zimbabwe? These, alongside many more questions, are answered in the pages of this compact and, often, emotional story.
There are moments of the usual dare-devil adrenaline activities associated with this author, including an incident that leaves Tony in an extremely dangerous situation!
Buy this enthralling book to discover how he survives!
