I am starting a new series called “Read this . . .”. I really struggled to think of a suitable name for the series, and I’m not sure whether this one is the right one either. Any suggestions are welcome.
So what is it about? Every week I read wonderful posts and articles written by other bloggers and writers. Ones that I have personally enjoyed, which have touched me or made me laugh. Often posts that I think deserve more attention and recognition than they are getting. So I’ve decided to highlight those posts in a semi-regular series. I hope to do this on a weekly basis, but I’ll have to see how it goes. The posts or articles won’t necessarily have been written in that week.
So here goes . . . Click on the title to link to the post.
I always enjoy Jackie’s Friday Five posts, but this one about the Grand Canyon was particularly interesting. I was saying to Jackie that we didn’t have any canyons on the scale of the Grand Canyon in Southern Africa. Then I read on Wikipedia that the Fish River Canyon in Namibia is the second largest canyon in the world and the largest canyon in Africa. To look at other photographs of the Fish River Canyon click here.
To see an interesting description of the Fish River Canyon read Trekking Fish River Canyon from the Other Places Travel Guide.

I still often think of Kathryn McCullough as “Haiti Kathryn” because I first started following Kathy when she and her partner Sara, were still living in Haiti. I’ve really enjoyed two of Kathy’s posts this week.
In the first one on crafts, Kathy shows just how creative she is.
This informative and yet light-hearted and amusing account of what one can learn from a stay in a mental hospital, shows exactly why Kathy survived a very dark period in her life.
That’s it for this week. I’m still trying to recover from our Kalahari trip, and am catching up on my blog reading.
