The Recruit (movie), The Cloud Garden (book)

The Recruit is not a new movie, but I saw it for the first time this past weekend.  It’s pretty good: intruiging story, well-known actors.  It’s not entirely surprising or unpredictable, but fairly entertaining.  Worth a rental, which we did.

Also this weekend, I read The Cloud Garden:  A True Story of Adventure, Survival, and Extreme Horticulture.  I got this book for my birthday a couple of months ago, and it’s really good.  It’s a fascinating story about a remote, lawless area: The Darien Gap.  Well worth reading.
