Some people smoke, some drink, some eat chocolate. I travel. That's my indulgence. Nothing makes me feel more alive than a sea of motorcycles rushing at me in Hanoi, as an old lady helps me across the street, or a guy with a machine gun yelling at me in Cambodian, when all I want to do is use the bathroom, or showering in cold water in Cuba, when it's about 50 degrees outside. Traveling helps me understand why we're on this planet and what makes us all tick, regardless of culture and geographical location. That's why I loved this book. I loved to read about western, pampered people who think they're all that, only to be served some humble pie for dessert.
