Botswana

BOTSWANA….Do I have any fans of Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series in the audience? Here’s a tidbit about the books that I learned while I was on vacation.

The guy who runs the B&B we stayed at in Somerset used to work for a large multinational and was stationed in Botswana for many years. He still visits regularly and his son runs a tourist safari there. One evening we got to talking about Botswana and I asked him if the depiction in the books was accurate. His answer: “Dead on perfect.” Just thought I’d pass that along.
