"On September 17, 2006, Amelia and I found ourselves on the border between Syria and Lebanon, drinking orange soda with the Syrian border guards. It was 34 days after the end of the 34-day war between Lebanon and Israel, and the sun was shining. . ."

Thus begins a hitchhiking trip like no other. Two young ladies - "an American and a Pole with a Green Card" - tour Lebanon's postwar landscape, thumbs leading the way. Impromptu tour guides are found in passing motorists, ranging from Maronite shoppers to Shia militiamen to Druze hotel employees-slash-philosophers, with the Lebanese army and the United Nations force chipping in, as well.

While the writing could have benefitted from some editorial work to make the story flow more smoothly, this story of two girls hitchhiking in the Middle East between wars is amazing. Belen Hernandez' observations of the characters are wickedly funny.
