Radio Shangri-La: What I Learned in the Happiest Kingdom on Earth
A chance encounter gave journalist Lisa Napoli the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move halfway around the world to the ancient Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan -- said to be one of the happiest places on Earth.
Just beginning to open its doors to the modern world, Bhutan is a deeply spiritual place, devoted to environmental conservation and committed to "Gross National Happiness" over materialism. To Lisa, it offers the opposite of her fast-paced life. She volunteers at the start of Bhutan's first youth-oriented radio station, Kuzoo FM, and immerses herself in the country's rapidly changing culture. Lisa soon realizes that her own perspective on life is challenged as she discovers the sense of purpose and joy that she had been yearning for.
In this smart, heartfelt, and delightful memoir, Lisa Napoli discovers that the world is a beautiful and complicated place -- and comes to appreciate her life for the adventure it is.
