Postcard from Precious Ramotswe

Sometimes, when I can't physically travel there's no better comfort than books. Here is one of my favorite book series The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. This beautiful series has taken me to great places in Bostwana! Thanks to all for the wonderful comments!

"Tea, of course, made the problem seem smaller, as it always does, and by the time they finally reached the bottom of their cups and Mma Makutsi had reached for the slightly chipped tea pot to pour a refill it had become clear what they had to do".

"You can go through life and make new friends every year - every month practically - but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years. Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel."
