Excerpt

minho de facil percurso por onde se abrisse communicação para as minas, quando vim a saber pelos landins que o rio Bua era navegavel no tempo das chuvas, indo por elle as almandias até ao Nyassa; julguei portanto conveniente verificar a exactidão d'aquella noticia, e parti na direcção do rio.

Percorridos cerca de 30 kilometros, chegámos á margem do Bua, perto da serra Mechinge, isto é, perto da sua origem, e seguimos rio abaixo ao longo da margem esquerda, mandando fazer repetidas sondagens, que nos davam sempre altura de agua superior á de um homem, durante dia e meio de viagem, até chegar á aldeia do Mambo de Chôoco, tributario de Mpesene. Do proprio Mambo soubemos que o rio era facilmente navegavel, o que eu mesmo tive occasião de verificar mais uma vez atravessando-o uns 80 kilometros a jusante.

No regresso a Mpesene aproveitámos ainda a occasião para visitar a residencia de Mocanda

As our author of the day, Kent chats about this book of hers, Stalking Jack, how much research she did on London and Whitechapel and how her characters were conceived.
