Destinations

This week found Zoe and I hopping all over the map — we started with three days in Lima, popped down for two in Huacachina, and then spent a final one in Nazca before boarding an overnight bus bound for Cusco.

I’m shivering my buns off, but otherwise enjoying searching out hidden gems across Peru’s overlooked capital. This…

So far I’ve reviewed Bangkok Noir, a short story collection that brings the noir genre to the steamy streets of Thailand, Hotel Honolulu, a fictional account of a Waikiki hotel manager’s quirky life in a paradise lost, and Tiger Balm…
