This is a blog about how links can bring ideas from far apart together.
A few days ago I was researching Papa Doc
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fran%C3%A7ois_Duvalier and the reign of terror he instigated in 1960's Haiti when I came across the case of a true zombie studied by Wade Davis, a Canadian ethno-botanist. I remembered I had heard the name before; I should have, I bought the book above about 2 months ago.
The Mallory & Irvine mystery has always been fascinating to me; while Hilary and Tenzing got the credit for the climb, I will maintain Mallory & Irvine completed the climb over 20 years earlier.
I got the book partly because of a new approach to the mystery and because I hope to write another story about WW1 at some time, having finished Pat Barker's "Toby's room" and bought the book before this "Life Class." http://alsdomain.weebly.com/7/post/2013/05/tobys-room.html#.UajK7tLVAW4
I started in 1960's Haiti and via various links I had travelled back to 1920's Tibet
