    1. The only thing that bothers me is that, judging from the photos I've seen of her, she was a fan of hunting and wearing fur and we hate such bitches with passion.

  2. That's good news. Karen Blixen appears to have been a fascinating person: adventurer, businesswoman, writer.

    Although I consider colonialism the source of all our present evils, I do like to read books or watch movies based on those colonial days. Karen, a danish female, in a coffee plantation of colonial Kenya - sounds like a captivating character in 'The Lioness' feature movie.

  3. I imagine it must have been even more challenging running a company as a woman back in those days. Failed farm or not, you have to admire the tenacity she had to go after her dreams.

    1. I imagine it is easier when you're born upper class = born to rule and command others without any guilt :)
