Third African trip
Third African trip (ru. Третья афровылазка) — the first literary work of the Russian traveler Viktor Pinchuk, who traveled several continents, practicing the methods of hobo tourism.
The work in the travel essay genre describes the author’s third African journey, which included six countries where the priority was to visit Sudan. The book details the itinerary of the trip and all the related details: ways of travel, street cuisine, the accommodation options used — on construction sites, in the open air, at the Aboriginals, and the first-tried method of sleeping in the police station.
Some thriller touches are added to the book by the narrator's unexpected getting into uninhabited territory following an unsuccessful attempt to swim across the river at the lower reaches of the Epupa Falls.

Quote[edit | edit source]
On December 3, 2010, from the Nativity of Christ, with a small camping backpack behind my back, I left the house, running away from the routine of pale gray days, which look like twins in a morgue. In the backpack — a monthly supply of oatmeal, a metal bowl and a mug, in the passport — not a single visa, in the head — dreams, ideas and a vague future.
