The other essays are wonderfully descriptive and expressive stories of each woman's interactions with the people, cities, countries, and sites. I got a sense of the sensations and experiences that the writers were trying to convey.
I felt the sogginess, sexiness and coldness of the rains in France, Mexico and Scotland; the gritty sand in the Taklamakan desert; again coldness in Italy; fear in the Amazon and Botswana; and learned that there are many different types of trips in Jamaica.
Each story was so delightful (except the one written in Turkey) that I couldn't wait to read the next one. These stories inspired me to want to go to places I never considered before, which a true travel book should instill in it's readers.
Great job to all the essayists and the editor, Lucy McCauley.
