About the author (2013)

Anthony worked as a refugee lawyer for three years, during which time the people of the world visited him in his office. After tiring of daily battles with a mean-spirited Australian Government, he set out to see the world for himself and restore his faith in humanity. He has been travelling ever since throughout Asia and Africa, all the while discovering unimagined uses for his Masters Degree in Middle Eastern politics. He is now based in Melbourne and works as a freelance writer and photographer. On his travels for Lonely Planet, Anthony has eaten rat in West Africa, been arrested in Iran and found himself constantly overwhelmed by the many kindnesses from anything-but-ordinary people wherever he's travelled.
