Wie wird es ihm in Afrika ergehen?
Five stars – worth seeking out, if you like this type of thing. Although Cameroon is far from where I grew up in Southern Africa, many of the truths hold and I found myself laughing aloud on multiple occasions.
But, OK, he did choose them.

While the details might not match, the “feel” certainly will.
