Bill Bryson’s African Diary

I forgot to mention that I read Bill Bryson’s African Diary the other day. I’d got it as a Christmas gift from Jan. We are both fans of Bill Bryson. I quite enjoyed it, but it did only take me a couple of hours to read; it’s a short book in a small format. One of those ‘proceeds go to charity’ books.
The ‘diary’ only covers a week Bill spent in Kenya as a guest of CARE International. He manages to tell the story, impress on the reader the seriousness of their work, and sprinkle the text with his usual brand of humour, all in a mere 56 pages.
