Book Review: Fried Eggs With Chopsticks



Fried Eggs With Chopsticks by Polly Evans

I've always been fascinated by the Far East (Japan and China, particularly), so when I saw this travelogue penned by an intrepid British travel writer, I grabbed it off the shelf!

Evans embarks on a 6 week tour of China with only a few Chinese phrases under her belt and the desire to see "the real China" - terrible transportation, language problems and all. Evans does a nice job of weaving humor, history, and her trials and tribulations at ordering food and traveling on buses through the most populous nation in the world.

I thoroughly enjoyed this unusual trip through China - recommended!
