So Allen is a little off the border in terms of traditional morals and ethics, but he does have interesting insight on the cultures he visits. Aside from the usual yuppie jabs at the US (not that I think the country does everything right, but you know he uses it just because he's cool like that. And by the way, LA has been a thriving cultural center for quite awhile now, even in '99. Sorry, why is LA the but of all jokes--sorry, LA expat. here :)

It's also fun to read about international travel before 9/11. And Allen does find interesting histories to talk about and mostly he has a good sense of humor on coffee's history.
