Tim Cahill is a genius and, yes, very much like Bill Bryson! I've read Cahill's 'REMOTE JOURNEYS ODDLY RENDERED' which was a compilation of some of his best and funniest travel stories. To read my review of it please visit my website at www.kidjuxta.tk - thanks! x And happy reading!

The BBC World Service was doing some readings from his work a couple of weeks ago. I only caught the last segment, but it was something like a list of things to remember while travelling. My favorite piece of advice was to remember that "YOU are the foreigner." Sometimes it's easy to forget that, especially in Prague.
On a topic which is pretty thoroughly unrelated, although it does have the letters "B" and "B" and "C" in it, I saw something on the world service website about the Chilean military guy A. Prat, who's street is pictured in the book for "Full Circle".
Apparently, an English language history textbook recently published down there has some items which slipped past the proofreaders, specifically that he was a dirty old man who never shaved.
By the way, what exactly is a "prat"? I'm assuming it isn't a complement. No need to cite examples, please.
