About me: I’m Christopher Vourlias, a 33-year-old, Brooklyn-born travel writer, currently based out of a backpack in West Africa. This Is Africa is a place to post my thoughts on the big, complex, woefully misunderstood continent I’ve called home for the past few years. I don’t update this site as often as I should; but when I do, boy oh boy, do I have a lot to say.
My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Variety, Harper’s, National Geographic Traveler, and countless other publications. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
