Leather and Canvas

"We were living in Peshawar (now Pakistan) and the first memory I have is when at about 3 years old. I was taken for a picnic along the banks of a big river. I was terrified of the big water wheels on this river because of the noise the sails made as they went round. I hid, as far as I could, in the back seat of the car, and I still remember the smell of the hot leather, as well as the noise of the sails; also the feel of cactus prickles in my foot when we got out of the car."
