From an author who worked on the foreign desk of The Washington Post … …who explored North and South America for nearly twelve months… … who was a finalist in a prestigious short story contest sponsored by the estate of F. Scott Fitzgerald … …comes a travel adventure that will change the way you see your life. Second in the series.
