This book is not deserving of the disparaging comments some made; full of honesty and humor, it frequently give details of what people in other countries content themselves with (or accept as the norm) which the author is overwhelmingly grateful for. Very competently written, it is an easy read that does not drag but entices you forward. I recommend this for the insight and story itself, plus a good warning or enticement to join a volunteer organization yourself.

This is a well written book! I so enjoyed the chance to live through a Peace Corps experience through Eve Brown-Waite's eyes.

The writer comes across as someone you'd LOVE to have in y our life. She's so funny, self-deprecating, goofy and real.

What a hilarious book!!! Eve first goes to Ecuador and then to Uganda. Her observations are 100% accurate . Truly funny.
