Publisher's Summary

A highly entertaining, anecdotal collection of humorous life observations during a trip around the world. Travelling by bus to Kathmandu, the author experiences hair-raising misadventures: a chase through Jerusalem, a gun battle in Jordan, a pummeling by a gargantuan masseur in Istanbul, a python in India, and the terrifying James Bond encounter in Australia. His portrait of an Afghani shopkeeper has a bizarre twist. Time-traveling detours punctuate interesting stories about the Taj Mahal, Sydney Opera House, Tahiti, Easter Island statues, and Christ in Rio. More than a travelogue, personal insights and character portrayals are underscored by whimsical humor.
