about

A unique collection of brief encounters and adventures from working in seventy countries - a kaleidoscope of landscapes, sounds, smells, politics, humor, dialogue and, above all, people. This is a warts-and-all account of the author's travels, with disasters and miseries alongside the high points. He takes you to danger zones, to wars of startling savagery in Sierra Leone, Pakistan and Angola, to coups and dubious elections. He narrowly avoids death in India, Mexico and Nigeria. In other episodes he simply savors the pleasures of traveling alone. As the author says, 'Nothing sharpens the understanding more than seeing things done ten different ways in ten different countries.'
