During his sojourns in various countries in Asia where his work took him, Juan Alfredo Pinto Saavedra, accumulated vivid and valued experiences which are depicted in this collection of ten short stories first published in Spanish.

His passion and love for Asia are evident in the stories that relate to Several places I Asia-be it the caves of Ellora, a temple at Sri Lanka, the Buddhist Shrines at Myanmar, or the endless march of a great variety of humankind in Singapore, Kolkata and Bangkok.

The plight of the Contemporary man caught between moral, economic and technological tensions is portrayed with immense subtlety and a rare philosophical depth.
