If It's Such a Small World Then Why Have I Been Sitting on this Airplane for Twelve Hours?

Lulu.com, Sep 14, 2008 - Travel - 270 pages
0 Reviews
A humorous, quirky, and unique look at the world, its people, and their cultures. Seventy-seven columns have been culled from Mad Dog's travels through the United States and the world, from a four-week coast-to-coast car trip to an extended stay on Bali, from the coronation of the Slug Queen in Eugene, Oregon to flirting with a Russian spy in Cuba. It's a view of the world as you've never seen it before.
