  2. Hi Neil and Gail, Really enjoying your updates, please keep them coming. Interesting historical account and beautiful photographs too. Luckyfish is in Grenada right now. Yes, after meeting you both and seeing Gleda we bought a Tiki 38 and sailed her from Cape Town to Caribbean. We are topping up the kitty in Mongolia right now, planning our next adventure. Gotta Love Wharrams!

    Carthage was a trading power house.

    Rome an agricultural heartland that had more farms and people.

    Think of it as the English Civil War and the American Revolution and Civil War in reverse. This time the bourgeoisie lost to a load of country oinks.

    Hannibal knew he could not win war of attrition and went for a quick victory,

    Had Carthage won the industrial revolution would have occurred 500 years earlier.

    It’s one of those sad mistakes of history,
