Imagine if the Pope and the Dalai Lama, together, escaped their entourages and embarked on a tour of the Italian countryside. No minders, no press, completely incognito. That is the very interesting premise of this book. Their experiences range from the ordinary to the extraordinary. The ending, without giving anything away, will blow your mind! Guaranteed to make you feel all warm inside, yet possibly shake you to your core. The author does an amazing job, making the entire caper feel real, and like you're alongside. This is a book that I'm really glad to have had the opportunity to read, and will be highly recommending to my friends and family.
