Having read and enjoyed the first 'Beard in Nepal' book, I was delighted to find this follow up book, with more interesting adventures and again written in that informal and very funny style. I love the way that Fiona is able to poke fun at herself. It was so interesting reading about the villagers' lives, culture and ways, so different from ours. Even though the couple were clearly deeply upset at times by the difference in the way animals are treated, Fiona still maintains a strong element of respect for the difference in culture. And I could hardly bear read about the extremely large spider!
I enjoyed the book so much I bought copies for all my friends this Christmas - it's the kind of book that would appeal to most people.
I heard through the grapevine that a third trip is planned this year, I really hope this is correct because I can't wait to read the next book!
