Our hero again

I believe that for his escape he took advantage of the migration of a flock of wild birds. On the morning of his departure he put his planet in perfect order. He carefully cleaned out his active volcanoes. He possessed two active volcanoes; and they were very convenient for heating his breakfast in the morning. He also had one volcano that was extinct. But, as he said, "One never knows!" So he cleaned out the extinct volcano, too. If they are well cleaned out, volcanoes burn slowly and steadily, without any eruptions. Volcanic eruptions are like fires in a chimney.

Travel writer. Colin Thubron

Good evening again to all of you.
Bon jour à tous.
The best way to learn a language is travelling, I think. These days I came across the Shadow of the Silk Road by Colin Thubron who is one of my favourite writers, and he had the opportunity to travell from Xian, China, to the Mediterranean coast. English people allways have time and money to do it that way, and the ability to pubblish their books. He did it in two different years but succeded and wrote his book. As we cannot do the same, I guess, why not to start reading his book to find out all his discoveries?
Then we can share our experiences.
