Welcome to the fifth issue of Perceptive Travel. Here's what we've got in store for you:
Guidebook writer Edward Readicker-Henderson gets sent on an upscale honeymoon article assignment in New Zealand but decides the most interesting attraction is a line of bras flapping in the breeze.
Graham Reid, author of Postcards From Elsewhere, takes the back roads of southern Italy in search of miracles and a flying simpleton.
Jeff Greenwald, author of Shopping for Buddhas and The Size of the World, goes in search of rare primates on an island in Ha Long Bay.
John W. Kropf, author of Unknown Sands, journeys to a remote area of Turkmenistan to walk where giants once roamed the Earth.
Perceptive Travel editor Tim Leffel travels through Argentina to immerse himself in the three pillars of local dining: grilled beef, lots of wine, and (very) late-night dinner conversations.
Plus world music reviews
This month's music reviews cover a compliation of Turkish grooves, the latest from Bajofondo Tango Club, a reggae compilation for kids, and a remix album from Cheb i Sabbah.
Susan Griffith, author of Work Your Way Around the World and other travel guides, reviews three new travel books: The Traveler's Handbook, The 8:55 to Baghdad, and Narrow Dog to Carcassonne.
