Three Peace Corps ladies, Battle Axe, Flames and D-Dawg, decided that they hadn't had enough adventure in Morocco, and so set forth for 'the Real Africa'.
After months of sometimes careful planning, these intrepid ladies decided to brave the southern reaches of Morocco and the coastal highways of Mauritania. They planned to give thanks for the beach bungalows of Senegal and then venture inland on a harrowing 3-day train ride to the former capital of the trans-saharan trade route, later catching a lazy boat ride to the ancient libraries of Timbuktu. They aspire to find a lonely pine tree in the desolate plains of Burkina Faso and ultimately ring in the New Year partying in huts above hippos and finish their journey on the hammock-lined shores of Ghana.
