    • The author relates her experiences as a volunteer working in a Mexican village. Her initial impressions of chaos and poverty are soon replaced with admiration and love of the Mexican traditions, festivals, families and food. Her observations as to why these people are so happy comes as no surprise to anyone privileged enough to spend time in similar communities where fairness, equality and family come first. The power of the book is more so as the author reflects on life in Australia and the mea [...]


    • Cate Kennedy's memoir has been on my to read list for ages. I haven't read a travel journal or travel memoir before so this was a new one for me. Cate brings us into her world working as a volunteer in Mexico for three years. Usually you think a memoir as someone telling you about themselves, yet in this memoir Cate focuses her lens on Mexico and she becomes the conduit through which we learn about this amazing country and its generous people. She shares how her experiences shaped and influenced [...]


    • A lovely memoir, covering the two years that Kennedy spent in small-town Mexico volunteering for a micro-credit community organisation. Full of insight and thoughtfulness, as she hammers away at the trade-offs between community spirit and safety. Kennedy's books is largely about Mexico - its education system, its family and community life and its warm-spiritedness - but the implications for Australia (and the west in general) are clear and sad.


    • I really enjoyed reading about Mexico. Cate made me reflect on my own life. Do we really need that new couch? Can I smile more at the checkout operator and ask them about their day? Does it really matter if things don't happen on time? We live in a lucky world.


    • 3.5, really. I could relate to her as a person, and the way she found it difficult integrating back into Western culture, as I have felt similar things after spending time in economically poorer countries. The book was a bit all over the place and less like a travel journal than a series of reflective essays pondering the disparities of 1st/3rd world cultures, delving into the history of Mexico and discussing the role that religion, fiestas etc have in their culture. So I found it a little less [...]


    • I might have liked this book better if I read it before I was here in Central America. Some of her descriptions of things that are now part of my daily life were a little irritating to me but might be new and fascinating to people who haven´t been here.


    • A beautiful memoir about writer Cate Kennedy's work in rural Mexico and what she learned about community and celebration.





    • Kennedy volunteers to work in Mexico for two years and this is her adjustment to and love of the culture. She makes us all feel guilty about our western materialistic ways. Do I need that many jugs?
