OPIS

When Gilbert Silvester wakes one day from a dream that his wife has cheated on him, he flees - immediately, irrationally, inexplicably - for Japan. In Tokyo he discovers the travel writings of the great Japanese poet Basho. Suddenly, from Gilbert's directionless crisis there emerges a purpose: a pilgrimage in the footsteps of the poet to see the moon rise over the pine islands of Matsushima.Along the way he falls into step with another pilgrim: Yosa, a young Japanese student clutching a copy of The Complete Manual of Suicide. Together, Gilbert and Yosa travel across Basho's disappearing Japan, one in search of his perfect ending and the other a new beginning. Serene, playful and profound, The Pine Islands is a story of the transformations we seek and the ones we find along the way.SHORTLISTED FOR THE GERMAN BOOK PRIZEWINNER OF THE BERLIN PRIZE FOR LITERATURE" />INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERWhen Gilbert Silvester wakes one day from a dream that his wife has cheated on him, he flees - immediately, irrationally, inexplicably - for Japan.

379 Reviews #5 of 16 things to do in Weeki Wachee. The Pines at Island Park is a small cabin community that offers an awesome experience for people visiting Yellowstone. It's about a 40 minute drive to the West Entrance, but outside of camping or staying inside the park, you can't do much better. A trip to buy items for dinner and a view of the area ! If you know anything about family in the Philippines, you know it's all about laughing, dancing, food, singing and having a good time.
