“Whether it’s Jeff Greenwald’s encounter with the kif-smoking Paul Bowles in Tangier, or Rolf Potts wandering a city he arrived in only by mistake, or Christina Ammon’s quest for contraband Cabernet – or even the recipe you’ll find for camel burger (don’t forget the chopped mint) -- the contents of this book are sure to stoke your wanderlust..” —Jim Benning, co-founder of World Hum
