The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

I don't usually recommend books, movies, or the like, but I'm making an exception. My wife and I have been watching episodes of the HBO series "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency." We have been getting them from Netflix.

The stories are based on a series of books by Alexander McCall Smith and are set in Gabarone, Botswana. The mystery aspects of the plot are thin, but that is more than compensated for by the interaction of the characters and the view of life inside Botswana. It is the view of Botswanan life that draws me the most. I have thoroughly enjoyed these stories and recommend them to others.
