A delightful world tour with a San Francisco taxi driver, searching for the one person he will take home with him for a visit to the USA. On the trip we meet a cast of truly colorful characters, and accompany the author on one adventure after another. Fascinating, well-written and heart felt. If you're a world traveler yourself, you'll identify with Newsham. If you're more the "armchair traveler" type, you'll be glad that he went and shared his experiences so vividly.
