I've been a woman
With my legs stretched by the wind
Rushing the day
Thinking I heard your voice
While it was only the nite
Making room for the dawn

Book review :How Does One Dress to Buy Dragonfruit:True Stories of Expat Women edited by Shannon Young
rule of thumb for expats do not drive. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for people ages
15-39. In a country where taking a cab is preferable why do so many want to live here.Why are so many willing to leave everything that they know and love to relocate here.
By reading How Does One Dress to Buy Dragonfruit: True Stories of Expat Women In Asia
I began to catch glimpsesas to the why. What is an expat(expatriate)? By definition it means to withdraw oneself from residence in or allegiance to one's native country. Here in our story we find an unusual Kalediscope of women living in Asia for reasons as diverse as the women themselves.
Some were seeking adventure, for another identity -a sense of belonging ,and quite a few found
love. I really enjoyed reading this book. Each author brought their unique ,passionate, and colorful style to their stories. I really had a tough time choosing one essay as my favorite they really were very strong poignant and vey well told. I would recommend this collections of essays if you were looking for something beyond a tourist guide through Asia. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.
