Comprises the piece of journalism Norman was once so much pleased with, a piece of writing at the devastation of Amerindian populations in Brazil, which ended in the institution of Survival foreign, which campaigns to guard tribal humans and their environments. shuttle writing that makes you snort, but in addition brings domestic the world's damage in wonderful understatement.

Example text

Another perspective is given by the fascinating Camera Obscura, a table-top on to which a magnified reflected image of the moving city is projected. Beaches The city’s best and biggest beach is Playa de la Victoria, a long strip of clean sand in the new town. Bus No 1 runs here from the old town every five minutes or so; it’s also just a short walk from the cathedral to the beginning of the strand. In summer it’s a hive of activity with beach bars and discotecas; the streets behind are also full of eating and drinking options.

In medium-sized towns and cities, at least one pharmacy is open 24 hrs; this is performed on a rota system (posted in the window of all pharmacies and listed in local newspapers). No vaccinations are needed. Language Everyone in Andalucía speaks Spanish, known either as castellano or español, and it’s a huge help to know some. The local accent, andaluz, is characterized by dropping consonants left, right and centre, thus dos tapas tends to be pronounced dotapa. Unlike in the rest of Spain, the letters ‘c’ and ‘z’ in words such as cerveza aren’t pronounced ‘th’ (although in Cádiz province, perversely, they tend to pronounce ‘s’ with that sound).

Flights from Australia and New Zealand There are no direct flights to Spain from Australia or New Zealand; the cheapest and quickest way is to connect via Frankfurt, Paris or London. It might turn out cheaper to book the Europe–Spain leg separately via a budget operator. Rail Unless you’ve got a railpass or you aren’t too keen on planes, forget about getting to Andalucía by train from anywhere further than France; you’ll save no money over the plane fare and use up days of time better spent in tapas bars.
