Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.

 

Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.

In Focus Haiti: A Guide to the People, Politics and Culture

In Focus Haiti: A Guide to the People, Politics and Culture - Charles Arthur Read this in preparation for two months in Haiti, this book gives a good, detailed overview over history, politics and culture of Haiti. The fact that it's from before the earthquake makes it especially obvious that this was a troubled country even before, but it also highlights the vibrancy and beauty that can be found.
