I was on my way to my spanish class at the University of Canterbury this morning when I spotted a book lying on a windowsill in the corridor. I was busy thinking about the vocab I was supposed to have learnt for today's lesson, so I wasn't really paying attention, so it wasn't until I'd walked past the book that I suddenly realised there was a yellow bookcrossing sticker on the front. I quickly turned back and grabbed the book, and discovered not only was it a bookcrossing book, it was one that was originally registered by The-Organist!

It's only the third bookcrossing book I've ever found in the wild, in over three years as a bookcrosser, so finding it was very exciting!

Thanks gemart, and The-Organist, for seriously brightening up my day!

Finally dug down deep enough through Mt ToBeRead to reach this book, and now I'm wishing I hadn't left it there so long - what an interesting story! Explores the difference between experiencing a country as a tourist and as a resident, and the resultant clash of cultures which, while it might diminish with experience, never entirely goes away.

I really enjoyed this book. I learnt some new French phrases, but my pronunciation is still rotten.
