The Good Husband of Zebra Drive book review
This is the end of the 5 days of book reviews from the Ladies No1# Detective Agency series, but there’s more to come next month. Still left in the series are 4 more books. I’ll post a 4 day in a row write up of those books in the future.
I just found out that there really is a town called Mochudi where Mma Ramotswe grew up! (photo below) Mochudi info ! Might be a fiction book, but the places are real. The link is about Mochudi compliments of Wikipedia. In this book there is a case for the detective agency to solve at the hospital in Mochudi which is about 40 minutes away, or a little longer if you have to go slow for potholes and stray cattle in the road.
A street in Mochudi- Mma Ramostwe’s hometown; there’s Mma Ramostwe’s white van to the right of photo above ! I’ve grown to appreciate Precious Ramostwe’s character in the book. She’s wise and slow to anger, kind, and observant which is why she’s a good detective.
When she met the doctor for lunch in Mochudi, pap was a staple on the menu with roasted corn on the cob. Wkii’s story on pap Pap is thick and sticky like rice or cornmeal; it’s a maize. Can be made thicker than what is in this bowl below.
I think I spotted Mma Ramootswe’s little white minivan again!
Diamond factories in Botswana below
Botswana has diamond factories. Someone gets a diamond engagement ring in this book! Some books back, a boy discovers that someone got a fake diamond and it was funny how the author brought it into the story.
