Finished reading Jounal of Alien. Which brought back many memories. I was not in Pakistan but in India in the 1950`sworking with the World Health & spent s lot of time staying in the villages. Some of the problems that Mary Lou came across I did also.
You can bring back all the things you had to cope with but you can not bring back the smells.
I just wish I had written such a good jounal
As I listen to to-day`s news I can picture things in Pakistan.
I enjoyed the book but maybe someone that had not been in some other Countries would not realize how some others live.
Thanks for sending me the copy.
