Around the World - On Expenses by Peter Biddlecombe

Book Description

Still convinced that the only true modern traveller is the business traveller, Peter Biddlecombe takes us on another irreverent global tour. He snubs his nose at the 'gimmick tourists', eschews crossing the Sahara naked on a skateboard and carries on doing what he does best - business, all over the world, with a wonderfully diverse range of characters. Power-players in Milan, storm-trooping language police in Toronto, and just general chaos in Kinshasa: a mere selection of the obstacles the international businessman must face as he struggles to get to grips with the local way of doing things. But it's all in the name of commerce, and whether he's trapped in a luxury hotel duirng the riots in Bombay or working his way through a Good Food Guide to Ouagadougou in one of the poorest countries in the world, Peter Biddlecombe usually comes up trumps ...not necessarily with the deal he was after, but always with a hilarious tale to tell.
