A newly enlarged Second Edition of the book now includes 77 (count 'em, seventy-seven!) unique, humorous, and insightful essays about people, places, and cultures around the world. It features tales from a four-week car trip across the United States, featuring visits to the Voodoo Museum, Graceland, and Bongo Java, a coffee house with a cinnamon bun that looks like Mother Theresa. There's the journal from a two-month stay in St-Malo, France, where Mad Dog discovered why he, as an American, was getting the cold shoulder. And it wasn't because of his bad Jerry Lewis imitation. From meeting a Russian spy in Cuba to visiting the true Funny Farm in Bend, Oregon, from being a camping weenie to eating weenies while camping, this book captures the quirky side of the world around us. It even includes a series about an 8½-month stay in Bali, where Anjing Gila (as Mad Dog was known in Indonesian) discovered the advantages to everyone being named one of only four names as well as the proper way to celebrate a White Rice Christmas.
