  • Lost City of the Monkey God - a good read of a true adventure and timely

    My wife has been reading "Lost City of the Monkey God", a 2017 book about searching for and finding a long-lost, ancient city in Honduras in 2015-2016. It's a true story about a civilization that existed and thrived, then disappeared about the time the Spanish came to central America. One theory for the disappearance of the people is that they were wiped out by leishmaniasis, a disease carried by sand flies. Interestingly, the author interviewed Dr. Anthony Fauci of NIH and Bill Gates, who both predicted in 2017 that a pandemic was likely in the future - and here we are!

    Anyway, the book is a good read and available as an e-book on Amazon. Something to pass the time at home.

    Thanks Gary, just downloaded the audiobook from the local library. It's kept my interest for over an hour and I'm looking forward to more tomorrow. Moves along well while introducing the corpus of the story.
