SLEEPING BETWEEN LIONS AND HYENAS: SOUTH AFRICA
Now that we have regained the desire to travel (or perhaps we never lost it?), now that there are fewer obstacles and restrictions, now that the world is once again a board on which to direct our pieces, now is the time to travel to Africa. That remote, complex and unfathomable land that, nevertheless, traps those who dare to discover it.
Africa enchants with its landscapes and its overwhelming fauna. The sleepy and monotonous savannah, the tropical rainforest, the arid desert lands, the icy slopes of the mountains, the white sandy beaches soaked by two oceans. But also for its immaterial, ethereal, almost magical features.
For the magic of its light, which gives unforgettable scenes. For the slowness of time, that other notion of existence that leads to live without urgency. But also for the strength of the group that responds to its tribal tradition. For all this and much more, it is time to discover the black continent, full of color and movement.
Once hailed as the Best Tourism Destination by the European Council on Tourism and Trade (ECTT), Ethiopia has been recharged with political harmony, security and infrastructure development. That and a wider range of flights between Madrid and Addis Ababa make this country a perfect destination for lovers of legendary landscapes. Lalibela, Axum, Gondar or the monasteries of Tigray are just some of the examples.

We go on a trip with Laura Lazzarino @losviajesdenena, to travel Africa by hitchhiking. This first podcast covers the stretch between Cairo and Uganda. It was the first 9 months of the trip, undoubtedly the most difficult. Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and then Somalia or Somaliland were countries that were very hard for her, where she was constantly challenged and where she had to question many things.
We talk about that, about hitchhiking on that continent, about hospitality, about bureaucracy, and all of that, interspersed with lots of deep reflections and hilarious anecdotes. It is a good complement to podcast #97 entitled 15 months hitchhiking across Africa (I) with Juan Villarino.
