If life is a journey--with detours, paths from which to choose, and myriad roadblocks to overcome--then Otto Ringling is most certainly on the journey of a lifetime. His first fifty or so years were pretty good. He felt he had it all, until one day he didn't.

Seeking understanding, he calls on Volya Rinpoche, a wise man and spiritual leader. A man who accepts the world as it comes to him, a man without pride or vanity. But Rinpoche, as it turns out, is experiencing his own time of doubt. In hopes of finding answers to life's mysteries, the two embark on a journey through America, an amusing and enlightening road trip that becomes a lesson in love and gratitude.

Entirely unmoving unlike Breakfast with Buddha. So much observation of their surroundings and build up, yet no grand finale whatsoever...extreme details that did no work in the story development and left a very strange imperialistic feeling at the end to me...I did not like this book...reminded me of how every minority group suffers at the "adoption" of white groups...
