Read in February, 2008

at first i was half excited about reading this book and half wary. i was apprehensive because it is a travel book of sorts and i have always had this notion that travel books are boring, because who wants to hear (or read) about other (real not fictional) peoples travels? not me! but i found that i was quite wrong and other peoples travels can not only be exciting but very informative as well. especially when there is a lot of history and a little politics thrown in.
by reading this book my knowledge of tibet and also china has grown tremendously, for two reasons: 1. i knew almost nothing about either country before reading this book and 2. this book is very informative and deals greatly with the history of tibet and therefore it must also deal with the history of china as well.
