So what is a citizen of the world? According to author Carol J. Yee in her book Welcome Back to Abuja Once Again: How I Became a Citizen of the World, it is a citizen who engages comfortably with the world, bridging cultural differences with interest and openness. True to her words, what you get here is a story of Yee’s travel adventures, an exploration of how her movement has influenced her world views and its implications in her development, identity, and learning. She takes you on a journey with her, where she not only discusses her travels but also explores travel tales of other citizens of the world. As for her own enriching travels, she talks about cultural differences from language to cuisine, customs, clothing, and religion, and how despite such diverse differences, we are connected in heart and spirit.

Author Carol J. Yee has opened an opportunity for us to travel the world within the comfort of our own homes. As you sit in your easy chair, you witness through her written words the richness and diversity of the world’s cultures and this sparks your interest to become a citizen of the world yourself. It is easy to get hooked on the wanderlust as Yee writes with openness and sincerity. She similarly addresses the global challenges that we are facing. As an adventurous traveler who makes sure that she learns from every encounter with places and people, Yee is increasing our awareness of multiple worldviews derived from perceptions of international issues and hands-on learning related to visiting foreign lands. Welcome Back to Abuja Once Again is a brilliant piece of travel writing worth reading. It will remind you there is no place like home, yet at the same time remind you the world is one big school of learning you should explore.
