Morocco- It simmers with exotic sounds, smells, flavors and spices. From its souks (markets) to the medinas (ancient walled cities) to the kasbahs (fortified villages/citadels) to the riads (homes built around a courtyard) and to its unique cuisine. The majesty of the snowcapped High Atlas Mountains; the Palmeraie- acre upon acre of stately date palms; and the pristine, virgin, undulating sands of the Sahara. Journey with me to this exotic land, where ancient medieval sights and traditions thrive and endure.

This book is the intimate diary of a girl who was born in England, but grew up in Colonial and post-Colonial "up-country" Kenya after her parents travelled overland across the Sahara Desert in 1947/1948. <br /><br />Her working life led her to meet prominent people in Kenya's Government. She ran a business in Mombasa, on Kenya's coast. Briefly, she and her partner worked for an "Aid Transportation Company" in the port of Assab, Eritrea, where they lived in a tent - better accommodation than the local hotel! <br /><br />Back in Kenya, after having to give up their beach resort on the Kenya Coast, they started a Safari Company which took them to nearly every point on the Kenya Map. There are times of heartbreak and suffering; but there is also great joy, especially at the birth of her two children. <br /><br />Through it all, shines the deep love Wendy has for the country that has been her home for the past 60+ years - Kenya.<br /><br />Ann Barns <br />

Some 150 years ago, the newly formed <i>Liebig’s Extract of Meat Company</i> rewarded loyal customers with gifts of colorful picture cards. Each card was a work of art; before long, thousands of them were circulating. Their beautiful images and associated commentary captivated people and new editions were eagerly awaited. As a group, they told fascinating stories about every conceivable aspect of life on earth and, similar to what the internet might do in our time, came to embody the sum total of human knowledge. With the help of these cards, collectors could travel the globe, meet people from any country on earth and learn about their customs. They could visit lost civilizations, too, or marvel at natural and man-made wonders around the globe. They could study up on plants and animals or the evolution of commerce and transport, learn about geography and history and natural science. They could discover the secrets of agriculture, forestry and fishing or trace the origin of new inventions that were transforming industry and life in general. They could familiarize themselves with music and literature, great art and architecture, with famous men and women of all ages and, most importantly perhaps, with children’s favorite world of giants and dwarfs, elves and gnomes, riddles and fairy tales! <br /><br />As a result, strange as it may sound, the company’s most important contribution, perhaps, was not to the kitchens of the world, but to the education of millions of people of all ages who could not go to school or afford books! The author’s grandmother was one of them and, many years later, when <i>he</i> was a child, she used her large collection of Liebig cards, as one might the modern-day internet, to satisfy his urge to find out <i>everything</i> about the big wide world. This eleventh volume of the <i>SURFING A MAGICAL INTERNET </i> series, resurrects another portion yet of grandmother’s collection. In Book 11, <i>Exploring Africa</i>, more than 160 pictures illustrate her imaginary trip to the pre-World War I world of Africa---a time when many of the 29 modern nations visited here were still colonies of various European powers. In the process, we find ourselves at the fortress of Ceuta, the Kasbah of Marrakesh, among the minarets of Tunis. We stand in awe before the rock temple of Abu Simbel, the Great Sphinx of Giza, and Cheop’s Pyramid---at 481 feet it had been the tallest man-made structure on earth for over 3,800 years! We travel among the wonders of nature, too, from the snow-capped Atlas Mountains to Saharan petrified forests and on to Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, which tops 19,300 feet. We follow some of the world’s longest rivers: the Nile, 4,350 miles, the Congo, over 700 feet deep at times and almost 3,000 miles long, and the Niger, 2,600 miles. We meet the most amazing plants---the Welwitschia, over a thousand years old, the manna lichens, said to have provided nourishment to the Israelites during their 40-year flight from Egypt, the baobab tree, storing 26,000 gallons of water in its swollen trunk. We meet most unusual animals, too---the Barbary sheep, the klipspringer and the dromedary, whose incredible abilities will surprise you, and the aardvark, whose sticky tongue can catch 50,000 insects in a single night! Using grandmother’s time machine, we can go further back in time as well, stand before Roman citadels, amphitheaters, triumphal arches, the ruins of Carthage, hang out with Phoenician traders, who brought us our alphabet, or watch Pharaoh Ramesses and his gods in 1300 B.C. And, of course, we meet dozens of modern-day tribes---Kabyles, Bedouins, Maasai, Bushmen, Zulu and many more, whose customs are simply fascinating. So many stories, captivating all, and so much fun! <br />

<P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal>A bestselling, award-winning author turns her hand to a work of travel memoir with this book. In 1967, at the age of 23, Elizabeth Laird set off for Addis Ababa to take up her first teaching post. Back in Britain, Laird established herself as a major author of fiction for children and young adults, but she always wanted to return to Ethiopia. Her chance came in the late 1990s, when the British Council in Addis Ababa invited her to collect folk stories from every region of the country and she encountered former guerrilla fighters, camel traders, Coptic nuns, and tribespeople en route. Laird has written a remarkable account of her journey interwoven with a treasure trove of stories featuring princes and maidens, snakes and lions, zombies and hyena-women.
