Where in the Book World Would I Live?


Today's question from the Insecure Writer's Support Group is, "Where in the book world would I live?"

The book is Durrell's memoir of his upbringing there. For those who don't know, Durrell was a British conservationist. He had lots of interesting experiences with the flora and fauna there. I don't think that I'd be particularly fond of the insects he came across, but it sure is pretty!  Here's a photo I found:
