How this bit of trash ended up on my to read list I may never know but I want the couple hours, of my life, I spent reading it back What type of adult nicknames fellow travelers The Dumpies Don t most of us learn in preschool not to name call She later calls workers in the visa office the three stooges and states that all Nepalese are liars I assume she s expecting these three stooges to cater to her indignant english while in their country Its page after page of complaining sprinkled with descriptions of her clumsy falling JOYShe should stay home and stop writing books image error A Beard In Nepal is a warm and humorous account of the ups and downs often falling down of being a volunteer teacher in a remote village in Nepal Fiona Roberts leads us through the decision to take advantage of a life changing opportunity, dealing with high altitudes, narrow roads clinging to the sides of mountains, piles of rubbish and attitudes to dogs and other animals At the end you may not wish to visit Nepal for yourself unless you are a hardy traveller, but you will certainly have an insight into this unique country.One little niggle, though There are a handful of black and white photos in the book With the descriptions of the wonderful things that the author saw and photographed in Nepal, surely a future edition could be justified having photos in it, and in colour What a fun and quick read It gave a glimpse into the culture of northern Nepal, and from a quirky and witty perspective I did have trouble following what was going on at times, though that simply could have been due to the British humor and writing style I walked away knowing much about the people of Nepal though I actually feel as if I know the people of Salle the village the author spent most of her time in I recommend this book for any hoping to travel to that land in the future or simply wanting to get an understanding of what it is like You ll have fun reading it, I guarantee it. A Beard in Nepal is funny and touching travel book Fiona Roberts writes vividly and I really like her sense of humour The book is also quite informative which is nice because I am keen to learn about different cultures I will absolutely read A Beard in Nepal 2 too I was expecting a book about Volunteering in Nepal As Fiona was a volunteer English teacher over there I was waiting her stories with the kids, people generally and the impact this trip had on both her and them.I missed the sense of purpose in Fiona s volunteering trip Usually Muslims volunteer with deep purpose But Fiona s trip sounded as just a kind of adventure without being related to real deep purpose for the world.This book is good to know everything bad about Nepal Fiona kept talking about every bad thing for 11 chapters, she didn t mention the kids in deep way before chapter 12 I was frustrated because of this.She mentioned what s bad about their diet, attitude, treating dogs, corrupted system, buses, music and loud voices, the roadand a lot of complains She didn t start to tell the good side a little but in the last few chapters which weren t as deep as I thought as well.In the end, It is good to know how she saw this trip May be, It is also good to be aware of the hardships of travelling to Nepal.Yet, I am not planning by any way to read books for Fiona I don t even know what to do with the hardcopy I have, As it would be hard to reread that book later anyways. I enjoyed this, mainly for the fact that I miss Nepal and just hearing about it s craziness makes me happy.Would have liked to hear a bit about the kids in the school and I don t think her husband sounds all that nice.I will probably give the next one a go though cos Fiona s writing is enjoyable.
