I devoured this book in one weekend! Rita Golden Gelman is an inspiration. She's fearless, trusting, and a true citizen of the world. I loved that she spent time in several places I knew well (Guatemala & New Zealand) and enjoyed reading about all the other cultures she became a part of. Her book was a joy to read. She is much less self-absorbed and whiny than Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of "Eat, Pray, Love" and she travels the way I would - lightly, cheaply, and with the aim of connecting to the indigenous people she meets, learning their culture and languages
