Dik-Diks of the Tundra
What is going on in Scandinavia? Is there a big dik-dik herd that I am unaware of?
First, Eliza covered Stalking the Wild Dik-Dik in the Icelandair in-flight magazine. Now, Dik-Dik has popped up in the May 2007 SAS in-flight mag.
The first one I can explain. Peter Moore mentioned my book to Eliza and now we're e-pals. The second? I'm pleased to see it but have no idea how it came about. You can't even buy Dik-Dik in Sweden, though I can't think of why someone hasn't thought to release it there yet, given that dik-diks are kept as pets in northern Sweden since all the dogs have to work hauling the kiddies to school.
The review writer seems to be a sensible fellow named Evan Rail, who wisely chooses to carry a plastic spoon with him everywhere. I concur! I always have a Lexan trio with me when I travel--a fork, knife, and spoon on a ring.
