it was amazing

the last few lines from the third and final continent is so simple and thus rings so true:

"I know that my achievement is quite ordinary. I am not the only man to seek his fortune far from home, and certainly I am not the first. Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have travelled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination."

Daniel yes, Sze, those words do ring true!

Carol I too, loved this book. The night I finished it, I went to bed with those last lines in my mind. I wanted to memorize and keep them with me.
