Anita Roddick



My travel companion

Anita Roddick is known as the founder of The Body Shop. In 1996 she went with me on a trip around the South to visit many of my friends from my book. She did not expect the poverty and despair to be so overwhelming and has written about the experience in several books and articles. With my family I later stayed in her home in England which you see in some of these photos.
More pictures and text to come later.
