From the Publisher

This is the story of a Turkish traveler’s solo journey across Africa, from Cape Town in the south to Cairo in the north.

In his second book, a follow-up to Nine Gates of Asia, Faruk Budak tells of his eight-month adventure.

Sometimes he rides on the back of a pickup truck or travels in a packed, run-down bus, and sometimes he walks along the dusty roads of Africa.

Africa Café contains valuable information about each step in this journey that includes visiting the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and structures; smelling the magical spice aromas of Zanzibar; eating tropical foods; going on safaris on the plains of Masai Mara and Serengeti National Park; walking the mysterious streets of Lamu, Africa’s Kathmandu; contemplating Egypt’s pyramids; and shopping in sukhs in Syria and Jordan.

Budak experienced the Dark Continent’s dark poverty along with its generosity, beauty, and enchantment. He experienced the absurdity of borders on a continent where beauty and ugliness, good and bad coexist.

Dreams are the only guide along this breathtaking journey. In Africa, dreams meet reality, earthly travel merges with the spirit’s inner journey, and the mission is completed.
