Czech writer, Hans Coudenhove writes of a long stay in Nyasaland (now Malawi) and describes the African people, mongooses, monkeys, lions, ants, kites, ravens and snakes. So immersed in African culture is author Coudenhove that he had not slept in a bed, dined with a human, or seen any entertainment in decades of living there. Quoth he: I have not been in a theatre for twenty-eight years.and I have never seen any of the modern dances--'jazz' I think they are called.
