really liked it
bookshelves: adventure-outdoor-survival, nonfiction

I loved this book. It wasn't deep and profound, and I don't really read books for escape, but that's what it was. It was the exact dream I'd once had for my own life that I will never be able to fulfill so for once I see it as an "escape" even though usually books inspire me how to live rather than dream.

It was a quick read and full of good stories, I could see myself in the author's shoes, being full of desire for adventure and then not knowing how to do anything and feeling intimidated and overwhelmed with the learning curve in a third world country. But I loved how she became the one who helped newcomers to the area and how her baby grew up among all those different influences.
