Book sixty: Don't Ask Any Old Bloke for Directions: A biker's whimsical journey across India by P.G. Tenzing

I picked this book up at a charming book store in Fort Cochin, India (see pic at right). We also got a collection of Indian children stories for Hen. This book is about an Indian fellow who, having quit his job working for the government, decides to motorcycle his way across the country. I would have preferred he spent a little more time discussing his experience - it really is an "I traveled here and did this" piece of non-fiction - but there are a few times when you get a glimpse of the India I grew to like a whole lot in the nearly three weeks I was there. 

60 down and the year is almost up!
