did not like it
Read in August, 2011

This "Guy" is a schmucky schlup. Same old travelogue style but with a narrator who seems to go out of his way to not connect with the locals. I didn't like the drawings and I didn't like this guy as a person. Laughing about eating dogs and cats and people falling down/getting hurt is not my idea of comedy. It's all been done before and much better written/drawn and by more like-able creators.

PS: I just figured out this is the same guy who did the Burma Chronicles which I really liked. Seems like he matured quite a bit in the years since he went to Shenzen.
