"Nice truck." The South African border guard considered it with almost lascivious interest. The model Bedford of the type once popular in the British army was entering the country on the last leg of a 7,000-mile safari from Nairobi to Cape Town. There were 18 tourists in the back, one tour guide in the front, and a ton of AK-47s hidden under the seats. It was 1986, at the height of the sanctions against apartheid.
