PS: Hey Steve, why doesn't this book show up on your Amazon author page? C'mon!
The book is an eye opening tour of our southern neighbors loaded with personal and pithy comments embedded in dry but humorous observations. Mr. Hely is a modern day Mark Twain.
At its core, this book is funny. It's a travel book, and it will lead you to daydream about traveling the world. But it definitely spends more time discussing the people you meet while traveling the world, rather than, you know, the actual world. The world seems secondary when you're on a boat full of Australian partiers who realize, with a bit of horror, that there are a few more days left on their boat ride, and the entire boat is out of drugs.
I enjoyed this book quite a bit and wish for more books in this genre.
Jeremy DeConcini, author of Camino del Diablo and Alpine Slide
Since I am going to Machu Pucchu, I was reall drawn to the information given and them the desription of the Gallapsgos Islands will make me add those to my trip.
Again a good read, I recommend it highly for any traveler or would be traveler

It's also a book that should be a must-read for anyone fearful of traveling in Third World lands where you don't speak the language all that well. Hely shows you how you don't need to fear for your life but just trust your instincts . . . although you better have good ones at times.
