My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Sacred Ground & Holy Water: Travel Tales of Enlightenment” by Lyn Fuchs is series of seventeen insightful and funny anecdotes of Fuch’s travels around the world. Based on the title, I would have expected something like traveling the Nile or climbing to a Tibetan monastery but that really isn’t what this book is about.
Some of Fuch’s stories are hilarious, I enjoyed the one where he passed out in a sweat lodge.
I came to, five feet outside the door with everyone
standing over me. Slimy grime covered my skin. Grimy slime
came from my nose—a swollen, blood-trickling nose. Must
have fallen on my face (literally and figuratively). All dignity
abandoned, I searched my arm for less-muddy places to
wipe pinkish snot in front of near strangers.
That so sounds like one of my adventures, or should I say one of my misadventures. How many people do you know that can claim to have been kicked out of a temple in India?
One the downside, I thought that some of the sexual innuendo was excessive as was the descriptions of mummy genitalia. That being said, this book is a gem and I highly recommend it. The writing is top-notch with just enough snark to make his anecdotes fun. I had a hard time putting this ebook away.
I give it a solid 4 stars.
