    it sped up considerably about 30 or so minutes after i posted that and it was much more bearable
    still not a fast loading site

    was well worth the read though... truly an epic journey

    finished the read
    very interesting
    but i also would never want to go there
    also really brings out the whole concept of racism and how it can affect how people interact

    That's pretty badass; but IMO it was pretty stupid as they could have been rob/killed quite a few times. Only way I'd do that is with a better car, guide, and a convoy.

    I was more shockedhe took his wife/girlfriend. The robbing and killing would be the easy part if it would have come to it.
