Another place I'd like to visit...

Botswana. Yes, the country in southern Africa. Over the past couple of years I've been reading Alexander McCall Smith's series The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. He paints a beautiful picture of Botswana and it's people.

I was so excited when a friend told me that there had been a television series based on the books. I rented the series and loved it. Although the actors in the series weren't exactly as I had pictured them, they were all just right. Now, I can't see them any other way.

Has a book ever made you want to visit a somewhere?

  1. Some friends of our family emigrated from Botswana. We were close neighbors for years, and they told me lots of great stories about Southern Africa.
