I nagged poor Joe into moving from England to Spain in 2004. We settled into a tiny mountain village in Andalucía, became reluctant chicken farmers and ended up owning probably the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. Our story is told in The Old Fools Trilogy: 1. Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools 2. Two Old Fools ~ Olé! 3. Two Old Fools on a Camel (NYT Bestseller) "Chickens" became an Amazon Top 100 Bestseller, and remained so for four months.

Fun read with so much useful information for other traveling working professionals, it almost tempted me out of retiremenr. Photos and links were well placed. I will definitely be rrying the recipes...as soon as can locate the spices!

I love travel and like writers who express the reality of an experience in a foreign land as compared to their home country. This writer is English and her trip to Bahrain is funny and well writen. I appreciated her candor as she adapted to the requirements as she worked on a temporary teaching assignment.
