The Liquid Continent: A Mediterranean Trilogy: Volume I: Alexandria.

Woodsworth, Nicholas.

Picture of The Liquid Continent: A Mediterranean Trilogy: Volume I: Alexandria.
He thinks of the Mediterranean as a single entity from whose coastlines people look over the water to each other. Here he writes about Alexandria, once a splendid metropolis with a cosmopolitan life and multicultural makeup. Today Alexandria is seedy and down-at-heel - but the people are still sociable, with 'a garrulous warmth'. Great reading for the armchair traveller.
