Travel broadens the mind, but traveling in the developing world can also loosen the bowels. The author describes the absurd, embarrassing and sometimes painful situations that he experiences while traveling in Latin America, Arabia and Asia. As he travels Wendell comes across an array of characters who will make the reader laugh, cringe or lose all hope for humanity. Not necessarily in that order.

You can only be an atheist if there is a God. " There is no such paradox. Atheism does not presuppose that there is a God, merely that there are people who believe there is.
