Jumanji is a magical adventure game featured in a 1995 movie of the same name. The game calls to us with jungle drums: Boom buppa-doom buppa-doom buppa-doom. The author's passport calls to her in much the same way. It wants to get out, to explore, to meet new people and see new things, and collect more stamps from new immigration officials.
The author has traveled the world from India to Bolivia, Antarctica to Malta. She has written many stories about her adventures, observations on foreign cultures and people, and interesting encounters that most tourists will never experience.
This book is the cheapest tour anyone can take to far flung countries from the comfort of their home.
