I enjoy reading about other people’s travels, especially to foreign lands. Brian, who put this out, writes about just that. He travels to West Africa with a school program, the majority of the time being in the Republic of Ghana. The trip took place in 2006, so if you read this and then go to said country and things are different, don’t say I didn’t warn you. It is mentioned early on in the zine that Brian wrote parts of it over the course of four years. That being said, his first full day in Ghana was Independence Day. It’s gotta be pretty rad to be in another country for the celebration of their Independence Day. The author doesn’t exactly write about all the cool things he did and saw while overseas, as much as he writes about “development” of land and how it affects the country and its people. If you prefer a more serious look at the world today, as opposed to a travel journal, then this zine is for you. Brian also writes about his first summer in Saint Louis as a college student. There was a major power outage due to violent storms that summer. He talks about getting to know his neighbors through sharing meals and whatnot. Then he goes on to talk about how “the answer is love.” He has some good ideas and theories on life, but rambles on a bit. The zine ends with a few drawings done by the author himself. One shows a Native American asking European explorers and pilgrims to reconsider the natives’ immigration policy. Humorous. –Nighthawk (Close To Home, PO Box 670, Maryville, IL62062, brian@bkgunderson.com)
