Joseph's adventure begins along the shores of Lake Abaya and Chamo, two of the lakes of the 2,400 mile Rift Valley where modern man is said to have originated. After becoming acquainted with the lakes' fishermen, birds, crocodiles and hippos, he soldiers on across dry, wide stretches of savannah and forests that hug the river beds into the Lower Omo Valley. During his stay in the valley he has close encounters with the Konso, Hamer and Mursi people, mostly nomadic tribal people who still live untouched by modern inventions and amenities.

Joseph heads to Quebec City, the only walled city north of Mexico, for a lively cultural adventure among the French-speaking Quebecois. The city offers so many attractions that it's hard for Joseph to squeeze them all in. Yet, half the pleasure is in the trying as Joseph strolls the village's atmospheric streets, joins into the colorful night life, samples world-famous cuisine, savors the area's natural beauty and generally celebrates La joie de vivre - the joy of living -- with the largest Francophone population outside of France. Vive les Quebecois! Vive la Ville de Quebec!
