EXACTLY what you would expect out of a Brit with a stiff upper lip: altitudes, measurements, prominent rocks and topographical features. Best to be read side by side with a biography (I suggest Into Africa: The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingstone) so that you can really appreciate that as he was writing such banal entries, he was vomiting up his intestines and bleeding out of several parts of his body at once. Serious badass.
