A writing rule says – first phrase should be catchy. "I knew something was seriously wrong when four policemen entered my classroom and signaled me to leave with them" was catchy enough for to continue reading Sharon Cracknell's book. It is in fact a travel diary, story of the author's trips to exotic countries like Uganda, Indonesia or even Kyrgyzstan.
I got acquainted with Sharon at TBEX Jerusalem and was excited to read a book of someone I have personally met.
Sharon writes in a vivid, ironic manner, so you can easily visualize the places. It feels like traveling together: chasing lions in Serengeti, playing card games for Pringles in Everest base camp or being invited to a posh Uzbek wedding in Samarkand.
And special thanks for "Houdini" Nivea wipes tip! I am definitely taking them with me when I finally get to climbing Kilimanjaro.
