Dear Readers. I hope you liked the first book of my trilogy: Europe.

All of the previous chapters are located in the Stories archive section of PhotoStockNOTES.

As I mentioned in the opening of chapter #39, Iíll be taking a break from writing about my Africa trip to repair the rain damage to my 1960 manuscript that was stored away in the granary building here at our farm here in Wisconsin.

In #39 I assembled some preview photos from our Africa trip. This week Iím printing some more of my collection of the Africa trip photos.

This is the final part (#40) of the ďEuropeĒ section (Europe-Africa-North/Central America) of my trilogy. Iíll be back in a couple months to continue ďMy Story.Ē

Whatís the name of the trilogy? Tentatively, Iím going to call it Among the People. Hereís the first draft of the book cover.

NOTE:
After falling from a cliff while photographing baboons with our 8mm movie camera, I made my way back to the Niamey hospital. One week later I was on a plane to the USA on December 24 1957 and got home for Christmas.
Rudi, and our newly acquired monkey, Bubu made it to the west coast of Africa, Dakar, Senegal, where Rudi found a freighter going to Boston, hopped aboard and arrive in Boston two months later in the winter of 1958. He brought the Vespa and monkey along with and I met up with them in Boston in February 1958.
The story will continue!
