The world vs. your world

 I agree with this assessment of the quality, approach, and purpose of both these blogs. While I did not go into reading them thinking that I wouldn't like them (because I knew they were about travel and experiences rather than a shopping list) I was surprised by how they both captured my attention and interest. They had two distinct writing styles but neither was overly formal, flowery, or complicated. But this did not detract from their appeal at all. I agree again that hearing about daily events through an outsider to the culture they are reporting on is far more engaging that it would have been if Hannah or Anne were blogging about their life in Bryn Mawr. The fact that these were all new sights, new tastes, new smells, and new experiences for them translated through their words and allow us to share in their wonder of these new discoveries.
