Van Gogh's correspondence is collected at this site: http://vangoghletters.org/vg/letters.html

In letter number 612 he complains of the white man's crude treatment of cannibalistic tribes:


"....cannibals in the sense that letís say an individual was eaten once a month, and what of that?
The whites, very Christian, etc., to put an end to this barbarity? really not very savage...., could think of nothing better than to exterminate both the tribe of cannibal natives and the tribe with which the former was at war (in order to obtain the requisite edible prisoners of war on both sides). Then the two islands were annexed, and did they become dismal!!! Those tattooed races, those negroes, those Indians, everything, everything, everything disappears or is corrupted."



Of Gauguin he writes:

"...everything his hand makes has a sweet, heart-rending, astonishing character. People donít understand him yet, and he suffers greatly from not selling, like other true poets..."


Van Gogh bought "Among the Mangoes" for 400 francs.

616 is the Number of the Beast.

Yes, I know you thought it was 666 but some scholars are arguing that it was originally 616 and they have the early bible pages that they say prove it, and that 666 might just have been a typo. I feel a bit foolish about that tattoo now.

618 is the number of rhinos slaughtered for their horns by poachers in South Africa this year alone.

Last year 448 were killed so it's a considerable rise. It seems the trade in rhino horn is on the rise, especially in Vietnam. It's obviously highly lucrative as the traders risk jail sentences of 20 or 40 years. If this scale of poaching continues, rhinos could be extinct within decades.


Read the full story in the National Geographic.

Flight EI 631 would bring me from Brussels to my home town of Dublin, Ireland, tomorrow morning. Wouldn't it be nice to be a passenger heading home for a few days?
