Cornelia and Emily's escapades in Europe are legendary and should definitely resonate for any other young impressionable person who has traveled the continent to "experience life". I reread this one on a regular basis, and always chuckle in some place different from the last. Most recently it was the section on the bedbugs. I passed it along to a friend, who did the same shaking laughing I do when in the PATH - and begged to borrow the book. High compliment indeed when she emailed: It has moved to my bathtub reading - and I find myself taking more baths....
