Jesus said, "Feed my sheep."

Travel writing

Looking for Lovedu
by Ann Jones
Fascinating, grueling journey—but take the polemic with a grain of salt. 10/11

Ghost Train to the Eastern Star: On the Tracks of the Great Railway Bazaar
by Paul Theroux
Grumpy, world-weary, cynical, astute, opinionated... and pretty much right on the money about most things, Theroux retraces a cross-continent journey he took decades ago. Excellent. 11/11

Badlands: A Tourist on the Axis of Evil
by Tony Wheeler
The founder of Lonely Planet travel guides visits the official Axis of Evil countries and some other bad actors too---as a tourist. The Evil Meter (which country is most evil?) he includes at the end is worth the price of the book. 11/11
