As we approached the end of our travels in South Africa and Botswana, Darlene and I talked Kindle on the porch of our cabin at Tau Game Lodge, located in Madikwe Game Reserve at the northern border of South Africa. This is the recording of our conversation on Friday, November 12, 2010.
Among the books we talked about, that we bought and downloaded during the trip, are the following: A Carrion Death by Michael Stanley, Blood Safari by Deon Meyer and K.L. Seegers, Whatever You Do, Don’t Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide by Peter Allison, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith, The Lost World of the Kalahari by Laurens Van Der Post and Wake Up Dead: A Thriller by Roger Smith.
Some other titles on my Kindle that have helped me learn about the culture of South Africa while we traveled the country are Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela, and No Turning Back: A Novel by Beverley Naidoo.
I’ve been blogging here about the trip in photos and text. I look forward to resuming “live” versions of the podcast for TKC 122, which will note the third anniversary of the launch of the original Kindle with an interview with a top Amazon official who has not yet made a visit to the podcast.
Cheers from Gaborone, Botswana!
