For both of them, life in the United States has been filled with hardship and loss. Following their own separate paths but each searching for a more meaningful future and financially better times, they are individually accepted into the Foreign Service. When they meet on assignment in Chile, a friendship begins that will span many years and many continents. Ticket to Tomorrow: From the Bizarre to the Bazaar follows Jamie and Carol-their careers, their travels, their loves, and their mishaps through many exotic-and not so exotic-places. Readers will walk in their footsteps through hilarious language classes in Paris, struggle hauling water up four flights of stairs in Turkey, develop a manic addiction to pinochle in Morocco, date the sultry locals in Chile, and shop until you drop in Jakarta. And still, the adventures are just beginning. From Chop Chop Square in Saudi Arabia to risking life and limb driving in Japan, Jamie and Carol take readers still further on adventure after adventure in Paraguay, Djibouti, Swaziland, Cyprus, and Baghdad. And would you believe the best pizza in the world is found in Malawi? No one ever said working or living overseas would be easy but Jamie and Carol find more than their share of trouble, adventures, and memories to last ten lifetimes. For the world traveler or those who wish they were, Jamie and Carol deliver a non-stop romp that will entertain from start to finish.
