To the memory of John Courteney Boot,
in Evelyn Waugh's Scoop,
who spent "some harrowing months
among the Patagonian Indians"
and wrote a book called Waste of Time.

"The Innocents Abroad, Updated" originally appeared, in somewhat different form, in the International Herald Tribune 100th
Anniversary Edition. "A Ramble Through Lebanon" was commissioned (and magnanimously paid for) by Vanity Fair but appeared
in the Washington, D.C., City Paper. "Through Darkest America"
was first published in Harper's; "Weekend Getaway," in Playboy;
"Third World Driving Hints and Tips," in Automobile; and "Intellectual Wilderness, Ho" and "What Does the Future Hold In Store
for Our Friends in Faraway Lands?," in The American Spectator.
The author would like to thank these publications for permission to
reprint this material. All the other pieces in the book were underwritten by Rolling Stone magazine. The author owes an immense
debt of gratitude (and quite a bit of money advanced for expenses)
to Editor and Publisher Jann Wenner.
