The journey (and the laughter) continue ...
on 20 July 2002
"Relentless pursuit of the non-existent by the clueless armed with the unworkable is bound to turn up something sooner or later" writes Pete McCarthy in his second book. He certainly is not clueless and what he turns up is definitely worth the detour - a detour that has us follow him Tangiers via Macquarie to Montserrat.
Full of witty observations, wonderful anecdotes, hilarious characters, "The Road to McCarthy" is a dangerous read if you're sitting on your own in a public place: you may well pass for a nutter, choking with laughter for no apparent reason. There you are: you have been warned !
And to end in McCarthy's words: "Travel can be full of surprises. Sometimes they're not even the surprises you expect."
All that remains is to re-read "McCarthy's Bar" while we wait for his next travel logbook.
