For many years, Lyn and Ros Rogers were the owners of Drifters, a famous game farm and backpacker lodge in the eastern mountains. But when President Robert Mugabe launched his violent land reclamation programme, everything changed. The Rogers found their home under siege, their friends and neighbours expelled, and their lives in danger. But instead of leaving, as their son pleaded with them to do, they hauled out a shotgun and stayed. Soon afterwards, Douglas returns to find the country of his birth in chaos, and his home transformed into something between a Marx Brothers romp and the Heart of Darkness: marijuana has supplanted maize in the fields; hookers have replaced gap-year kids as guests; soldiers, spies and teenage diamond dealers down beers at the bar. Beyond the farm gates, armed war veterans loyal to Mugabe circle like hungry lions. And yet, in spite of it all, the Rogers - with the help of friends and locals, black political dissidents among them - hold on. And Douglas begins to see his parents in a new light: unbowed, even heroic. In the process he learns that the big story he had pursued throughout his adult life was actually happening in his own backyard. The Last Resort is an inspiring, edgy roller-coaster adventure, but also a deeply moving testament to the love and loyalty inspired by Zimbabwe and her people.

Review of Tokyo Drifter (DVD)
Advantages: Delicious bars - Reasonable price - Less calories than other snacks.. Disadvantages: None for me..
...Any regular readers of my reviews will be well aware by now that I have a love of all things sweet, be it cakes, biscuits or chocolate bars, I do enjoy eating sweet-tasting snacks on a regular basis.
Whilst shopping in a local branch of Lidl recently, my eye happened upon a bright blue-coloured packaged containing eight individual ?Drifter? Bars. From the well-known ?Nestle? range...
Advantages: fun little set, well built Disadvantages: goes through them too quickly, only has 1 car
...with a little weight due to the silver metal that sits in the bottom of the car, this pokes out so that it can move around the track.
