Speaking this month we have:
- Delia Cardnell – Madagascar, Along the Route du Sud and road to Morondava (RN34)Delia Cardnell takes us on a journey along the Route du Sud travelling straight through Central Madagascar, where the scenery is as stimulating and surreal as the culture.
- John Pilkington – Georgia to AfghanistanAfter his last talk for us, ‘A Stroll through the Axis of Evil‘, John promised a sequel and here it is. From the Caucasus he followed a spectacular branch of the Silk Road across the Caspian Sea to Samarkand, then turned south-east to the High Pamirs of Tajikistan and Afghanistan (a region well-known to Marco Polo and possibly one or two Globies), before finishing at the source of the Oxus where Afghanistan, Pakistan and China meet.
See http://www.pilk.net/update1.centralasia.html more information about John and his adventures.
London branch meetings are held at The Church of Scotland, Crown Court, behind the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden at 2.30pm the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a UK public holiday that weekend. There is no London meeting in August, but we start afresh each September.
