Coffee-coloured people

In these days of aggressive nationalism and communities divided by ethinicity and religion, there are some liberals who yearn for the old days before multi-culturalism, when the idea of the world being a melting pot of coffee-coloured people seemed a great idea.

I suspect that a world of coffee-coloured people would be a world of shoe-removing people. Simple demographics would ensure that the mass of people in Asia would ensure the prominence of the custom of removing shoes in homes.

I've made my payment of £28.94 to Shirley Saunders through Paypal. How long did it take for the book to get to you, between the time of your payment and you receiving it?

Sorry I meant $28.94, not £28.94, it translates into £18.67
