What I Considered the Best Chapter of This Book

              Traveling through Italy, India and Indonesia with Elizabeth Gilbert have been exciting, interesting and even convincing enough to make me want to go out and seek self discovery.  However, I would have to say that the chapter about Indonesia was the most interesting.  Don’t get me wrong and all that Italy was about a fun, pure pleasure seeking adventure, along the loveliest language, Italian, which she adores just as much as I love French.  But Indonesia is the one place I would have never guessed of going on a self-seeking adventure.  Indonesia was filled with a lot of happy greeting moments and meeting such interesting new people that become friends of her.  The way Ketut Liyer lived his life as a medicine man was so interesting and then comes along this very outgoing woman who owns her own medicine shop, Wayang.  Just her personal story of life and her hardships tugged at the heartstrings and made you want to fly all the way over there, give Wayang and her family a giant hug and say “Everything’s going to be all right.”  Then I wasn’t expecting Elizabeth to raise the money herself for Wayang to help her find a house and support her family.  Just the chain reaction that spreaded!  To top it all off Elizabeth faces love straight in the face and she has come such a long way on her self-seeking journey that she accepts it!
