Cherry Denman has spent her life trailing husband Charlie round some of the world’s most remote outposts and can ask for the lavatory in eleven languages. While some aspects of living abroad will always puzzle her – saunas, tofu and circumcision, to name just three – she wouldn’t have missed it for anything. Lessons learnt range from the practical (possessions belong either in the suitcase or the skip: storage is for wimps), to the truly useful (how to avoid the drinks party bore) and the truly bizarre (the episode with the goat . . .). Charming and witty, these hilarious tales of global misunderstsanding are illustrated with over seventy original line drawings.

Reviews

'Charming...delightful, a collection of lively, jolly anecdotes (which) can be dipped into as and when you fancy. Cherry is smashing, high-spirited, fond of a good joke, and she can be blissfully rude' -
Daily Mail
'effusive wit...'
The Times
'... the rituous truth about [her] perilous postings'
