it was amazing
Recommended for: everyone, especially those who plan to live overseas
read count: at least three

This might be my favorite book--EVER. Jamie Zeppa creates Bhutan in such an accessible way I feel like I've lived there. Her heartbreaks became my own. She becomes a broader person in Bhutan. She says (not a direct quote), when I lived in Canada, I didn't really think about the consequences of my actions. When I put the garbage out, it was taken away. Here in Bhutan, I am forced to contemplate what will happen to something when I am done with it.

This book also asks, am I doing more harm than good? I think every person who has lived overseas has contemplated this exact thought.

Jamie shows us that we are all connected--that our actions here in North America have a far-reaching impact that we may never see or hear about. She also shows us that one decision can forever alter our life path. It's the journey that's important--and those we love!
