Fascinating memoir/travelogue of an elderly woman from Nepal who travels through America with her young befriended Peace Corps man and his girlfriend. I eagerly read each page, reveling in the cultural discoveries as well as the descriptions of our country itself. This was a pilgrimage like no other, an inner one as well as the obvious outer one. Deeply spiritual.
