Another Outstanding Travel Log by Twain

Similar to The Innocents Abroad - this novel is another of Twain's travel diary-style books. It has a lot of humor, and it also has some unforgettable descriptions of India. Amid the humor, there is also a lot of sincere and thoughtful description of the lands that he visited along the equator - it is a great glimpse at some of these lands, and some of the people in them. Overall, Innocents Abroad is a bit funnier - but Following the Equator is a pretty close second. His descriptions of his personal valet in India are hilarious This book is well worth the time if you like Twain's prose, and you want to get a glimpse of some distant lands
