summary ç Bill Bryson's African Diary Nal Museum Bryson registers the striking contrasts of a postcolonial society in transition He visits the astoundingly vast Great Rift Valley; undergoes the rigors of a teeth rattling train journey to Mombasa and a hair whitening flight through a vicious storm; and visits the refugee camps and the agricultural and economic projects where dedicated CARE professionals wage noble and dogged war against poverty dislocation and corruption. So disappointed in this I could see it was likely to be a puff piece for the charity in return for the junket but expected it to be leaven

Somewhere along the lines the idea changed to include publishing a "book" and using all profits as a donation to charity, with a small amount of the $12 cover price used for printing and distribution costs. Most of the participants were volunteering their time.Sounds like a great idea, right? Except, t

    (Bill Bryson's African Diary) [PDF] ´ Bill Bryson This is not really a book. It is Bill Bryson's Diary about his 8 day trip to Kenya with CARE international. It's just 55 pages long. I got it from the library due to being interested in charity work.

    (Bill Bryson's African Diary) [PDF] ´ Bill Bryson download Bill Bryson's African Diary So disappointed in this. I could see it was likely to be a puff piece for the charity in return for the junket but expected it to be leavened with the customary Bryson humour. Much po faced and worthy than I thought, with all the aid recipients 'saintly' and 'deserving' and inspirational. Also hampered with first world guilt and the western tendency to take responsibility for everyone else. Oh, we built them wells but they fell

    (Bill Bryson's African Diary) [PDF] ´ Bill Bryson First of all, this is not a book. It's a diary. Bryson recounts his 8 days in Kenya with members of CARE International. And that's 7 days longer than I'd want to be there. What a dreadful place! Poverty, crime, hunger, lack of sanitation, no clean water, disease, corrupt government and a hostile climate. Some of the other reviewers on Goodreads fault Bryson for not covering enough ground, but I disagree. You don't need
