Mr Fernando led me into a dark room that was lined with book-cases and smelled of leather and damp. This title follows in the footsteps of the eccentric Victorian James Emerson Tennent, along a route which takes Cherry to pilgrimage trails, into tea estates and rural regions inhabited by indigenous tribes.
Cherry Briggs worked as a Biology teacher in Oxfordshire until the cold, grey skies got the better of her and she went in search of warmer climes. Being a keen cyclist she got on her bike and cycled around Asia until she finally settled in Sri Lanka. Much as she loved the island however, her feet soon became itchy and she now lives high up in the Andes in Bogota, Colombia.
