Entertaining, yet quite cynical, look at the places traveled. I liked that the author is highly opinionated & gives his unvarnished opinion of the places & people he meets. (Not everyone may appreciate his extremely straightforward style of writing. Thompson reminds me of a mix of Anthony Bourdain & Bill Maher.) The author is not 'politically correct' & doesn't necessarily paint a rosy picture of the places he visited, but I appreciated the detailed info about his travels.
