I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of this book and found the second half to be okay. The first half of the book the author traveled the world and discussed cultural issues and norms that most travel writers avoid or ignore. I liked seeing a country and a people as it is, and not as we pretend it is. The second half of the book was more about the author herself.

There were many thoughts and feelings I can connect with and it definitely struck a chord with me. If you love to travel I think you would enjoy this book.… (mere)
