SHORT STORIES

As the reader can well imagine from the remoteness of some of our posts, we encountered many hilarious situations on our travels, which for one reason or another it would be inappropriate to include in the main body of my narrative, but which it would be a pity not to share with the reader. They were just as integral a part of the human story which unfolded before us as the more serious part of our life, and are I think amusing enough to bear retelling. I have therefore decided to share some of these experiences with the reader by including in this postscript five short anecdotal stories, which I hope will give him a further insight into the lighter side of our life, and as much pleasure and amusement as they did us.
