Readers’ thoughts

You undertook the trip on a completely different plane and did an admirable job. There are not many of your tribe. I can only say “may your tribe grow”.

Vyjay Rao – India

It is extraordinary when one can be respected and at the same time publicly promote a culture, both to alert and increase tourism in a dignified way.

One more reason why we love following your travels and your work.
