Mad Wolf (Loco Lobo in Spanish) is a sixty one year old Israeli. He is a fellow dromomaniac, recently retired, who spends some seven months each year continent hoping who i first meet in Lake Bunyonyi and subsequently again in Kampala.
He is clearly very Israeli – loud, argumentative, opinionated and insulting to locals. Nonetheless he is also hilariously funny, intelligent and very quotable.
Zev (Wolf in Hebrew) sings the praises of www.badoo.com . A “dating” site that often provides him with free accommodation in towns he is passing through. He uses it throughout Africa and Asia too. I ask him if he is not worried about diseases. “That is what condoms were invented for” he declares pulling out a large fistful of rubbers from his back-pocket.
He invites me to stay at his cool home in the Arab section in Haifa.I will report back shortly.
