it was amazing
Read in January, 2006

Really enjoyed this journey by train south till you can't go no more. Loved his description of the madness of football games in South America and the lock-down during elections. He's a misanthrope, so you can't get mad at him for seeming to insult a culture with his observations because he's not singling out people. He has contempt for all.
