These stories are so old, dating to the 1970s, that they are more historical record than helpful travel advice. That said, they are so well written they remain a real pleasure to read and it is fascinating to discover what has not changed in the destinations I am familiar with. Their style is an object lesson for any writer who follows the current fashion for making themselves the story; the writer's lightly-carried learning, observations and quiet sense of humour make her into a fascinating person without her intruding into the action - though her contact book must be phenomenal.
