Welcome to the April 2014 issue of online magazine Perceptive Travel, the home of great travel stories from book authors and the latest notable travel book and world music reviews. Here's what we've got in store for you:
Hunger and Privilege: Dinner in Old Delhi - Jim Johnston
Travelers exploring the old city of Delhi confront the underbelly of India normally hidden around every corner.
Learning How To Drive a Dinosaur In Iceland - Luke Armstrong
To explore the magical landscapes of Iceland, a traveler must first face down a mechanical beast.
Finding Italian Marble at Its Source: Carrara, Italy - Debi Goodwin
A writer fascinated by rocks investigates a place where slabs of white marble come down from the mountains in Italy, going back to the days of Michelangelo.
World Music Reviews - Laurence Mitchell
Havana straight up and mixed with Jamaica, a compilation of unreleased tracks from a world music festival roster, and big band music with a Turkish twist.
Travel Book Reviews - Susan Griffith
A 1930s romp through central Europe, a tagalong's look at the modern shipping industry, and a book you can judge by the bad pun on its cover.
