Dispatch #19: The Sultan’s Palace and on to Chad
Greetings. With more United Against Malaria and Rite to Sight work behind us, we reach Zinder, a city that once thrived on the trans-Saharan trade in ivory, salt, slaves and gold.
We are welcomed at the Sultan’s Palace, where one of the fetishes above the entrance door is a human head. The All Afrika Expedition is working its way East towards Chad, country number 45, two to go. Expecting some tough challenges ahead. Land Rover, thanks for your support.
