A seasoned traveller and former expat, the blogger behind Burpqueen.wordpress.com had this to say about Drinking Camel’s Milk in the Yurt (Summertime Publishing 2013; Ed. Monica Neboli):
“In Drinking Camel’s Milk in the Yurt, an anthology by expats in Kazakhstan and edited by Monica Neboli, I was left with a new curiosity about a part of the world that let’s face it, most of us have never considered visiting.
Two of the biggest expat challenges to living abroad are adapting to a different culture, and finding a sense of belonging. In this collection of stories, expats from all over the world expose the many traditions, mindsets and an ultimate sense of community in a country that is pretty much unknown to the rest of the world. Despite what Westerners may or may not know; this is a country filled with welcoming people and a celebrated passion for culture. What’s not to enjoy about that?
The stories in this book had me thinking that there is indeed a part of the world that I have yet to discover; that would fulfill that sense of adventure from visiting somewhere exotic, and deliver an untouched cultural experience.”
