Based on a true story, this is a riveting account of a young African American woman practically dropped off to live in the Dominican Republic and Colombia and forced to find her way. Having grown up in the suburbs of Cleveland, OH, she grapples with learning the language, living with a host family, dating, culture shock, racial profiling, and violence. Her time living in Colombia came at a time when the country had just started opening up to tourists. The travel memoir serves as a guide for anyone considering living abroad and is also very informative about the history and culture of black communities in both nations.
