    The author traveled around the 17th century Ottoman Empire as well as into Europe and Persia a bit and reports on his travels The book was very interesting in terms of understanding the history and culture of the time and I especially enjoyed it because I have been to several of the places mentioned It was a little hard to follow if you are not familiar with the places that he mentions but still a worthwhile read

    A delightful read full of hilarious anecdotes Boundaries between facts and fantasies are somewhat blurred and Evliya leaves it to the readers'imagination to sift through facts and fiction A rare glimpse into the 17th century Ottoman life by a witty inuisitive traveler
