Friederike Knabe Will, I have the book here, and looked into it, but couldn't bring up the enthusiasm to actually dig int it,,, despite my love for the country and attraction for the old city. Now in the news, it is quite scary what is happening there... although apparently the gold mining has not been affected (yet)


Will Byrnes I did dig in, but it has now bee a while and, because of my excessive backlog, i may not get to it. My overall impression was that it was an interesting enough book, that offers a closer view on a remote place and time and shows that people can be real morons, even if they are decked out in nifty attire, a sort of Darwin Awards invitational.
