Description: Deep in the abyss of a cold, wet, wintry day, Pamela Watson could take no more: No more meetings, no more daily grind, no more rain. "That's it!" she thought. "I'll cycle across Africa!"

So begins one of the great adventure stories of our time. For years Pamela Watson had been a corporate strategy consultant with a nice lifestyle and a solid income, but the appeal had long since faded and, like all of us, she had a growing feeling that she was missing out on something -- something called Life. She made the decision to trade desk for dust and journey across the African continent. Alone. On a bicycle. Madness.

What she found there was not only a life of high adventure, of great joy and shocking poverty, of beauty and terror, but a subtler, yet infinitely more rewarding, understanding of myriad peoples half a world away. Cycling from Dakar to Dar es Salaam, through 17 countries and nearly 10,000 miles, attacked by vicious dogs, threatened by machete-wielding men, and driven to despair by the endless and awful roads, she saw an Africa rarely reported in the media. She was in Nigeria during the tense days surrounding their aborted presidential election, Zaire as they struggled to rid themselves of Mobutu, and Rwanda at the outbreak of civil war. And through it all, peaceful oases awaited her each evening as she was warmly welcomed by rural villagers. Join Pamela on her epic journey for a bit of fun, a lot of work, and an adventure like no other.
