Read in October, 2007

A humorous memoir of bad or just plain weird travel experiences. Nothing is spectacularly unique --- from a dislocated knee in Sumatra, to getting clothes stolen while staying with monks in Hua Hin, Thailand; from being burglarized by an aggressively fearless monkey while too stoned to move in Pushkar, to the austere welcome a theater troupe receives in Soviet Romania. But Halliday is an engaging and very funny writer. She has an admirable talent for keeping the reader too amused to notice that nothing much of note is actually happening (hey, she was in Scotland with a baby!).
