    Just read it. Quite a interesting litte story. I liked this bit

    "The Let's Go books are similarly idiosyncratic, written by sunnier Harvard undergrads who putter around their assigned continent. (The dirty secret is that these student-writers often use Lonely Planet as their guidebook.)"

    lol. :)


    Has Soomtam seen the whole bit about Travelfish??????
