A country shaped by its national sport; another reimagined by a blockbuster movie; outwardly uninspiring places revealing their inner charm. . . Even if we live in a “Global Village”, every street in this village still has its own flavour, and every house is unique and worth exploring. Part rumination, part travelogue, Traversing the Global Village is a reflection on the extraordinary diversity of people, places, and cultures that author Edward Porper has encountered over a lifetime of travel. If you enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures, Traversing the Global Village is for you.
