Shopping malls are a curious thing. Before I moved to Asia, I had thought them to be a very American icon. While cities in Europe had malls, they weren't town focal points. Asia, however, now does shopping malls better--and bigger--than any I've ever experienced in the US. This week on Novel Adventurers, we're writing about shopping around the world, and I take a look at the vast popularity of Asian shopping malls. Please stop by and take a look! Here's the link.
This week on Novel Adventurers, I write about why I love taking river cruises, and why the Yangtze River cruise is one of the best river-related activities in Asia. Click here to read the post, and while you're there, I'd love it if you left a comment.
This week on Novel Adventurers we're looking at poetry around the world. Like books, in poetry I'm always seeking a story, a place, a description that will transport me. One of my lifelong favorite poets is Canadian Robert Service, who wrote verse about the Gold Rush. Please visit the site and see the blog. Happy reading!
