Quoting libralady

The Long Way Down, by Ewan McGregor (of Trainspotting and Star Wars fame)  and Charlie Borman.

 

These intrepid travellers decided to travel around the world on motor bikes about three years ago, along came book and film etc etc.

 

This was so successful they devided to ride the Long Way Down, from John O´Groats (Northern tip of Scotland) to Cape Town South Africa.

 

The support Unicef and visit unicef run projects on their way.

 

It is a good read, written as they are both speaking, i.e. taking it in turns, and you get a different perspective on one situation.

 

I would highly recommend this book and the Long Way Round - any motorcycle enthusiasts would love the adventure!

 

Just finished the Long Way Down and I must say, not a patch on Long Way Round.  Not such an interesting journey I felt and one African country sounded very much like the next one.  Really skipped the journey through Namibia to South Africa in a few pages.

 

So I am now beginning the latest Joh Le Carre book, "A most Wanted Man".  A spy book about a Russian Muslim, so it says in the front cover........................... it begins:

 

A Turkish heavy weight boxing champion sauntering down a Hamburg Street with his mother on his arm can scarcely  be blammed for failing to notice that he is being shadowed by a skinny boy in a black coat..........................

Evil Britain?

 Amerika is mentioned in a way, but not in the top-10. About Britain, I think Tony forgot that....
