In the summer of 1988 I took the train down through France and Italy to Sicily. I was fascinated by Palermo, its Moorish & Norman palaces and crumbling tenements.
Cairo to Kenya, overland through East Africa 1983.
For some forgotten reason I had a couple of sketchbooks with me but no camera, possibly because I didn’t own a camera at the time.
I flew to Cairo from Athens and made my way south through Egypt, Sudan, Zaire, Uganda to Kenya and the coast. It took about 3 months. I flew home from Nairobi. It was a fantastic trip and I’m really glad I did a few drawings along the way.
Cairo was a complete culture shock for a young lad from the suburbs of Nottingham.
