A Wet Walk

Despite the continuous downpour on Saturday I was determined to walk so we did a six mile circuit around Uley, a section of the Cotswold Way which diverted around a rather interesting burial tump. Some steep banks and wooded areas made the walk varied although due to the relentless rain it was quite nice to get back to the car!

Review: Tears of the Giraffe

Book front cover
Title:
Tears Of The Giraffe (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency)
Author:
Alexander McCall Smith
ISBN:
0349116652
Rating:
5 out of 5 stars
This is the second in the series 'No 1 Ladies Detective Agency' and follows the antics of Mma Ramotswe in her detective agency in Bostwana. Like the first in the series it is entertaining and a real delight to read. McCall Smith clearly understands the spirit of Africa and his writing draws the reader into a country that is simple, delightful and full of beauty. He communicates the essence of Botswanan life in a tone that is gentle and refreshing, yet somehow challenging and thoughtprovoking. I can't wait to read the next two in the series.
