Quote of the Day

"Where is Nile Road, please?" he said.
"Oh, you've passed it," said Mike, who loved directing people. "Turn up that road just there, and then take the second on the left - that's Nile Road."
Perhaps Mike's English voice attracted the old lady's attention; perhaps she wanted a closer look at this extraordinary couple. In any case she suddenly said, "I'll get out, Raphael, while you turn the car. I shall buy some peaches after all."

From VENTURE TO SOUTH AFRICA, Chapter 9, Looking After Stella.
