#This is important. Inexperienced travellers might think that 'Aargh!' is universal, but in Betrobi it means 'highly enjoyable' and in Howondaland it means, variously' I would like to eat your foot', Your wife is a big hippo' and 'Hello, Thinks Mr Purple Cat.' One particular tribe has a fearsome reputation for cruelty merely because prisoners appear, to them, to be shouting 'Quick! Extra boiling oil!'

LOL yeah, I just adore the footnotes. That is a pretty darn good one too. I remember thinking that it was unique that sometimes 1/2 of two facing pages were covered with footnotes... They really add a cool dimension.
