Winner: Andrew J. Pfeifer.

Andrew recently returned from a stint in Mexico with the Peace Corps. So this win seems like a true example of Karma, doesn’t it? He says he’s been to New Orleans before, but is eager to return. Have a great time, Andrew!!

INTERLINK BOOKS In 2009, I gushed, “I am absolutely, deliriously infatuated with the publishing company called Interlink. With 616(now 732)  books  that are dedicated to World Travel listed on their web page, it seems that you can go anywhere, with any interest and they’ve got you covered.

That’s where you find out how YOU can get a chance on $300 worth of books for only $10. Last year, this is what I said about Interlink (I toned it down a little, but I’m still gushing).

(A few more are listed as Cultural and Literary Companions.) Continue reading Beneath the Surface of Istanbul
