Chasing Hornbills charts Simon Fenton's further adventures in Senegal Now a father and expanding his business interests to include a taxi firm and a restaurant he continues to face the everyday frustrations and exhilarations that made Suirting Milk at Chameleons such a compelling and entertaining read But as his understanding of Senegalese life and culture grows so do uestions about his future Will the Accidental African settle permanently in his adopted home or will he give up and return to his old familiar life This isn't so much a travel book as the continued story of the author's struggles to build a new and better life for himself in Senegal As you might expect it isn't always easy But it is always entertainingAll the tales of Senegal and West Africa are great but for me the most interesting chapter was one called 'Loving the Alien' towards the end of the book in which Simon reveals about the difficulties of loving someone from a very different culture It is the honesty with which he reveals the complexities of these very real relationships that makes this book so much than just another 'fish out of water' tale

Chasing Hornbills Up to My Neck in Africa? Chasing Hornbills charts Simon Fenton's further adventures in Senegal Now a father and expanding his business interests to include a taxi firm and a restaurant he continues to face the everyday frustrations and exhilarations that made Suirting Milk at Chameleons such a compelling and entertaining read But as his understanding of Senegalese life and culture grows so do uestions about his future Will the Accidental African settle permanently in his adopted home or will he give up and return to his old familiar lif This is the second book by Simon Fenton about his life in Abene a small village in the Casamance region of Senegal The first is called 'suirting milk at chameleons' This book continues on from his first and recounts incidents adventures and everyday life in Abene and for me critically his travels around the region to the Basari country in the East and the islands off of Guinea Bissau in the south Simon writes well and with perception as he compares the culture and life in West Africa to his previous time in the UK Since his first book the children have grown as have his tourism business and associated ventures into used car parts The book is well seuenced although structured in such a way that each chapter could in fact be read in any order as they are self contained and deal with themes such as his travels to Guinea Bissau the Teranga spirit hospitality to be found everywhere problems with bureaucracy and the deep spiritual and cultural life in the villages I spend time each year in one of the neighbouring villages to Abene and can relate to everything that Simon writes about However you do not have to have been to West Africa to enjoy this book he explains things well and the reader should be able to gain a good picture of life in the Casamance one which over the next decade or so will no doubt see many significant changes A great read which I fully recommend
