Photographer's Note

This photo looks old and it is.

In October 1974 we bought a ride in a cabin of a truck between Maiduguri in eastern Nigeria and N'Djamena the capital of Chad - a distance of some 250 kms. The road passed across the extreme northern tip of the Cameroons. We were part of a convoy trucks but this was no fast journey - the dirt road had the biggest potholes imaginable. We were on the road for at least 3 days and 2 nights and each night we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. A journey never to be forgotten.

A scan from a kodachrome slide which required quite a bit of post-processing to get it to look as good and as old as it does.
