Don't know if this counts as advertising or promotion, but I'm going to post it anyway.

Today the Pilot Guides website published my little travel story! Yay! I didn't get any cash for it, but it's still pretty cool. The story is called Fracas in La Paz and is about my misadventures with altitude sickness and Bolivian governmental stability.

(Frankly, I don't like the ending of the story - I felt it was weak after all the action. I'd rewrite it if I had my way).

Only a couple more stories before I'm Bill Bryson, no?

Congratulations, Greg! Nothing like seeing yourself in print (unless it's an advertising campaign that the client turned upside down and you thank Adam and everyone after that your name isn't on the thing... but, I'm digressing...)

And I like your last paragraph. It's offbeat and funny and unexpected. Very like your posts - so I'll venture to say - very like you!

Congrats Greg, that's great!

Remdinds me that we need to get something up with travel writing too.... would you be interested in having it published here too now that it is already published with the 'big guys'? :)

Sure, no problem. It'll give me a chance to rewrite that ending to make it stronger. ;)
