The author compares different African cities as explored on foot from a European's perspective. In particular, the narration describes how the city layout is able to excite or disappoint the explorer's will to use specific structures such as coffee shops, resting places, etc., and how on foot one can explore and understand the making and transformations of a city. The cities presented as examples are Ile-Ife, Ibadan, and Abuja in Nigeria; Nairobi in Kenya; and Addis Abeba in Ethiopia.
