Tea with Mma Ramotswe



Do you know Mma Ramotswe and her The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency?

Mma Ramotswe is a good friend of mine, and I love to have tea with her. Rooibush tea of course, tea made from this special red African tree. For Mma Ramotswe it can never be any other type of tea:-)

I love this series written by Alexander McCall Smith about the Botswana lady detective Mma Ramotswe. You say that you haven't read them...yet? Well, all I can say then is that these books are a must! And of course always with rooibush tea!

Happy reading and happy tea drinking!

I love this series of books. They are so sweet and so innocent, somehow. It is a pleasure to visit that place via a book.

A good book and tea at the Blue Cafe. What a winning combination.

Love the sketch you've embellished with watercolor.

I've never heard of these books. I'll have to check my library since I'm probably going tomorrow.
BTW, I love that drawing!

Linda - I have read all the books and plan to reread them :-)

Ilva, I will check the BBC site and see if I can podcast the series.

Darla - we are often on the same wavelength, aren't we :-)

Star - thanks for the nice words about my sketch. I haven't sketched in a long time now, how about you?

Cate - did you find the books?

Wandering in late from the Halloween blogger party. Although I have fun with the bounty of Halloween goodies for sale in this country, I agree that it can be just as memorable when celebrated in a simple, quiet way as well.

I haven't read this series yet, but I have the first book - my TBR list (To Be Read) is staggeringly large.
