Tea, terrorists, etc.
It's been a while since I posted a link to Chapter 16 but I hope all you bookish types are checking out the site regularly. I just did a Q&A with Mark Stephen Meadows, an American artist and wanderer who traveled to Sri Lanka in 2003, hoping to spend some quality time with Tamil rebels. His account of the journey, Tea Time with Terrorists, is funny and insightful, and he had lots of interesting tidbits to offer in our interview, including his three rules of travel:
1) Get Lost.
2) Talk to Strangers.
3) Keep Your Shit Together.
Seems like sound advice to me. Read the interview here. You can sample some of Mark's writing at his website.
