The history is good, but it needs better editing. The tourist tips at the idea were good but also a bit bipolar - "it is a safe as your home but do not go out alone if you are woman" seems a bit of conflicting message. I mean, I understand why its there, but for a female reader it is a 180. I should note, however, the authors handled the bit about respecting traditions quite well, and they provide advice on how to stay safe.
If the editing were better (and the writing smoother) this would easily be 3-4 stars.
