  •   The Best (just about) Of Mozambique – In a Nissan Pathfinder. "You have come to the factory..." I was recently at a presentation given by a pair of South African Microlight aircraft pilots who described how while they were flying up the west coast of South America they landed to refuel at a small town in Columbia, a country notorious as a producer of illicit drugs. A policeman approached them and, after making a half-hearted search of their baggage, asked whether they wanted to buy cocaine. While they were desperately trying to explain that they had no interest in…
