Last Trout in Venice: How I Drank the Water in the Grand Canal and Lived to Do Other Foolish Things Around the World (Travelers' Tales Footsteps)by Doug Lansky
Synopses & Reviews
With a bottomless taste for the absurd, Doug Lansky takes the reader on a global odyssey. In Naples, reputedly the worlds worst place to drive, Lansky rents a car. In Berlin, he dons a latex jumpsuit and spiked collar for a visit to the notoriously erotic Kit Kat Club. And in Tokyo, determined to deepen his appreciation for sumo wrestling, Lansky takes lessons from a master and rediscovers how it feels to be lifted into the air by a wedgie. Other adventures include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in ill-fitting hiking boots, competing with the mobs to get picked for The Price Is Right, and tandem hang gliding with a daredevil pilot in New Zealand.
Doug Lansky takes readers on a global odyssey of the absurd--he rents a car in Naples, the worst driving city in the world; in Berlin, he dons a latex jumpsuit and spiked collar for a visit to the notorious Kit Kat Club; and gets a wedgie in Tokyo during sumo wrestling.
Describing foolish activities in atypical places is Lansky's goal, as he rents a car in the worst driving city in the world, dons a rubber jumpsuit to party at Berlin's Kit Kat Klub and discovers the world's worst wedgie during sumo wrestling lessons in Japan.
