Snapshots by Mehreen Ahmed

     A journey to four continents.  The days captured in diary-like fashion for us to enjoy. We see history come alive as we visit each place.  Speaking to locals gives us an even bigger picture of what happened in each area.  Though crowded with modern buildings, cars and fashions, the past peeks through and allows us a chance to once again see it as it once was. The air comes alive with past glories. Let's join the trip.

     Ms Ahmed does a wonderful job of recounting history and the modern aspects of each area we visit.  Well written, it puts you in the spot as if you were walking along side Ms Ahmed.  There are even some excerpts concerning Islamic history. I could hear the music and see the fashions of each period as I read. I  enjoyed being able to see these areas in history.  The travel and food listed made me feel as though I'd been there myself.  A perfect read whether you're traveling to these places or not.

     I found no issues with this one. 

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I was swept away in the romance and splendor of each area.
