THE BORDER CROSSING THAT ALMOST KILLED ME

Half asleep, my head bobbed foregrounding the blurred landscape of the Kenyan savanna. The view gradually transitioned from silhouette of the flat horizon to sprawling forest shrouded in pitch black night. It was close to midnight and the road was noticeably rough, no longer the smooth...
