    This collection of essays is a young American writer¿s explorati

    This collection of essays is a young American writer’s exploration into a foreign land. Written with eloquence and a level of insight rare among her peers, Salisbury narrates a series of experiences, both mundane and extraordinary, in an accessible but fascinating way. The series of essays reveal as much about a foreigner's perspective on Japan as they do the author's own mental landscape – and it is hard to decide which is most absorbing. Perhaps what is most astounding about this little book is the level of curiosity and reservation of judgment Salisbury demonstrates, which allows her to make such unique friendships and insightful recollections about an extraordinary experience. I can't wait to read what’s next! - Jessica L.

    The descriptions of new discoveries in a foreign land in Salisbu

    The descriptions of new discoveries in a foreign land in Salisbury's journal was delightful. I only wish I had the Wanderlust and gift of prose that this author displays at such a young age. The essays made me take a second look at the places I wanted to visit on my travels as well as my everyday surroundings. I bought several copies as gifts to friends who love to travel. Salisbury has unlimited possibilities ahead of her. Bravo!

    A delightful journal that shares the joy of exploring new worlds

    A delightful journal that shares the joy of exploring new worlds and the wonder of youthful enthusiasm.  Lauren's well- written insights share her experiences of a year teaching and learning  in the Japanese culture -- moments of joy, fear, love, beauty and wonder well-captured!  It is short and sweet, but  meaningful.  Definitely  a great read  for anyone planning a  trip to that fascinating land!
