After I wrote the post below, I sat down with my cup of tea and my comic book and read this

Beyond Bou Chougga is a dreadful place, beside the yellow waters of the sluggish Zaire, where acre after acre of the ground is choked with sickly lilies and the clouds hang fixed within the dismal sky, and do not move. The region is called Silence, and in the days it took us to pass through it we were all of us far too dispirited to speak.

It’s from The League of Extraordinary Gentleman’s New Traveller’s Almanac. God bless you Mr Moore.

Am eagerly awaiting volume III.
