Broken Hill has been home base for the Royal Flying Doctor Service since 1936 and is the primary base for RFDS emergency retrieval missions in the Southeastern quarter of Australia’s vast outback. Emergency medical missions are the most famous role of the RFDS – landing on dirt strips, paddocks, and remote highways at any hour of the day or night to retrieve the injured and critically ill.
Some of the best barbecue cooks in Mexico live in the north of the country - a land of vast plains, desert valleys and dramatic, arid Sierra mountain ranges. There the natives build a fire from gnarled mountain pine and fragrant mesquite, letting the flames die down to glowing coals before they begin to cook. This slow, steady heat gently browns and softens the meat until it is lip-smackingly tender.
