Eating the Flowers of Paradise

I picked up this book after reading another of Kevin Rushby's books, and noticing this title - sounded interesting. It is a chronicle of a trip that Rushby took through northeaast Africa, and focuses on the use of qat, a mild drug that is chewed from leaves and is mostly used socially. It as interesting reading, but like the other book of his I read, seemed kind of meandering. He didn't really seem to have a point or goal, but just floated around noticing things until the book ended.

Book 62

Meandering... yep, definitely sounds like a book about drugs...
