Congratulations on scoring the gold and bronze! You put together a sweet 2007 Best Travel Writing comp. I can’t seem to forget Maciej Ceglowski’s “Argentina on Two Steaks a Day” and Paul Theroux’s piece on being a sex slave.
In such great company, I’m honored and flattered to take the silver medal for my book Is There a Hole in the Boat? Tales of Travel in Panama without a Car.
Any word on a deadline for submissions for Travelers’ Tales 30 Days in Panama?
