Six Camels for Your Daughter
A delightfully idiosyncratic assemblage of stories about encounters with simple people in the most ordinary places made extraordinary by its impasto-like imagery - intense, intimate, and heartfelt. In 1975 the author became the first female student from the Philippines to study in Romania. She spent almost three years at the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca (Transylvania) and the University of Bucharest. In addition to traveling around Romania extensively during her student days, she also explored as extensively both sides of the Iron Curtain long before the collapse of the communist regimes in Eastern Europe and the then-Soviet Union. After finishing her course in Romania, she moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked and lived for many years.During those years, travel continued to be an important part of her life personally and professionally. This collection of personal observations from her travels covers both her Romanian and Washington years.
