I love this book! I have read all of Annie Hawes' books and like the ways she writes - with great spontaneity and eye for detail.
This time she tells the tale of her visit to Morocco and Algeria. The whole enterprise seems quite harebrained to the not-so-enterprising reader but Annie pulls it off with great panache. She meets fascinating people, but also has the experience (as I did) that it is very hard for a woman alone to travel in a Muslim country. Luckily she is accompanied by two French gentlemen friends for most of the time.
I can't wait for the sequel to this super book!
