Journal Entry 1 by wingSherlockfanwing from Upper Hutt, Wellington Province New Zealand on Wednesday, March 03, 2010
What does the elegant nostalgia of Argentina have in common with the raffish nonchalence of Australia? And what do both these countries have in common with North Korea? They are all "lonely places", cut off from the rest of the world by geography, ideology, or sheer weirdness. And they have all attracted the attention of Pico Iyer, one of the finest travel writers ever to book a room in the pyongyang Koryo hotel.

This book was passed on to me by a sister-in-law, a keen developing travel writer herself, for bookcrossing.
