The book detailed the life of Simon Fenton, a man who visited Senegal, fell in love with it and a Senegalese woman, Khady. Squirting Milk was a fun, light-hearted look at the difficulties of a Westerner living in and adapting to the African culture. It was a fantastic read and when Simon told me the second installment was coming out in a few weeks, I jumped at the chance to get an advanced copy, to read it and to participate in some small way to publicise it.
Titled; Chasing Hornbills, this is an account of the next year or so, following on from where Squirting Milk left off.
Chasing Hornbills charts Simon Fenton's further adventures in Senegal. Now a father of two and juggling multiple businesses, he continues to face the everyday frustrations and exhilarations that made Squirting Milk at Chameleons such a compelling and entertaining read.
After seeing, but failing to chase a huge Hornbill, the locals warn Simon that he has missed the opportunity to earn good luck. With tropical illnesses, near-death experiences, voodoo madness, making him seriously question his own sanity, the Accidental African, must make a decision - will he settle permanently in his adopted home, or give up and return to his old familiar life.
Simon Fenton is a travel writer and photographer. Having worked variously as a morgue attendant, English teacher, pig farmer and Bollywod extra, he now lives in Senegal, with his partner Khady and their two sons, running the guest house that he built.
This book is fantastic, so do check it out.
Until we meet again, have a wonderful, peace-filled day!
