      1. As she accompanied her husband on some of his travels, she could gather material for Murder on the Orient Express and … on the Nile. She actually was one of my English teachers. I boroughed her complete works from the library of the British Council and took notes of all the idioms I found. Then I had to order dictionaries of English idioms from England, because there was no Internet, no Wikipedia, no nothing. Learning a foreign language by yourself must be dead easy these days.

        1. Yes, much easier these days. I like reading foreign fiction on my kindle as I can just tap a word to get a translation. Normally I prefer real books but easy translation wins me over.
