About the author (2005)

Before finishing graduate school, Ken Lindley had lived in Asia and Europe and around the United States. He’s spent more than half of his life in New York, but call before dropping by—he’s frequently out of town, traipsing the globe from India to Peru to China to Turkey. He’s never been anywhere that wasn’t interesting in some way (although he does keep a list of extremely dreadful destinations). When he’s not on a travel assignment, there’s a good chance he’ll be on Wall Street, where he writes and edits financial reports for hotshot financial firms. His travel writings have appeared in Frommer’s Caribbean Cruises & Ports of Call, in Out & About, and online at Expedia Travels (

Christina Colón’s two great passions in life are nature and travel. She has been everywhere from Borneo (where she lived for 2 years tracking wild animals) to Belize (where she did her master’s thesis in a jaguar preserve). With a Ph.D. in ecology, a master’s in environmental education, and adjunct positions at several universities, she is a scientist and an educator, as well as an author. When she is not exploring a tropical rainforest or an exotic island, she can be found in the Bronx, where she loves to seek the wilder side of the borough, which is full of hidden treasures. In addition to scientific and academic texts, she has contributed to numerous travel guides, including Frommer’s Caribbean Cruises and Ports of Call, The New York Time’s Guide to New York City, and several Fodor’s USA Guides.
