it was ok

Ok, i admit, I have not finished reading this book yet. She is a bit long winded and slightly self centered in the fact that her focus seams to mainly be concerned with herself. I know its a book about her journeys, so that is supposed to present in the book...but i don't know...whenever she does selfless acts, it seams like its not really self-less. This is just my opinion. She really lost my will to continue on in the chapter where she talked about the Zapotec village. Her hostess was beaten regularly by her husband...which was common in that village. She went on to say something along the lines of "i just have to accept it, because that is her destiny." I tried to keep reading, but that line just bothered me soo much that i didn't make it very far. I might finish it at a later period, just because i crave knowledge on places i've never been before, but the authors long winded, self infatuated ramblings were really hard to trudge through.
