This month we are going for a little more light-hearted read. After homelessness, orphans, and murder we are headed to the Sierra Madre's in Mexico for cowboys, Indians, outlaws, drugs, a little shootin' and some funny, funny travel writing. I'll bet you've never seen a Western like this: God's Middle Finger: Into the Lawless Heart of the Sierra Madre by Richard Grant Grant, a travel writer from England, is obsessed with the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico and he wants to travel through them. Despite warnings of drugs, gangs, and men who just like killin', Grant heads off into the mountains and hopes for the best. Grant's story is full or wry humor, but he does not let that humor detract from his travels through a land where the modern and the old West clash.

    First meeting for me. I liked the fact that there were some differing views on the author's motivations/state of mind, and that the discussion moved to more local issues.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
