Travel Adventure in Colonial Africa An inspiring true story Author, veteran foreign correspondent and television journalist, Iain Finlay, now in his eighties, recalls two remarkable overland treks through Africa in the 1950s. Viewed now in the light of more than sixty years of historical change in that continent, they have become, in effect, mini time-capsules...journeys in time... Travelling through a pivotal moment in Africa's history. he sees an Africa that has long since disappeared - an Africa in which every one of sixteen countries traversed is under colonial rule or some form of European influence. After adventures across the North African desert, in East Africa, the copper mines of Rhodesia, and the surf beaches of South Africa, as well as Mozambique, the Belgian Congo and the Sudan, Iain arrives back in Australia just before the 1956 Olympic Games are due to start in Melbourne. He sets out with boundless optimism, to try to land his first job as a journalist.
