Travelling Rough and Travelling Tough
a unique brace of travel books by Hendrik Erasmus
A to I (Book One) and J to Z (Book Two)
The author greatly admires the travelogues of Theroux; indeed, his detailed and elegantly observed text are at best reminiscent of Thoreux's commentary. Often the seamier underside of a community is revealed, like when he worked compassionately as a taxi driver in Paarl, South Africa, during the apartheid period.
