    I thoroughly enjoyed this book of stories about life in Somalia The author is a cousin of a dear friend Her experiences as a Peace Corp teacher in a small village school made for an entertaining and educational book I learned a lot about a country I knew very little about.

    Since I got this from the library I decided to read these stories The first one is very engaging like the way it s written I m ordering it again I only got through half of it Very good, yet sad I learned a lot about the peace corps view of Somalia, a country I didn t know It s a small book some chapters are not easy to get through there are fun It s very interesting account of a country that has had a violent past
