By Ted Simon

L. a. excepcional calidad humana de Ted Simon, junto con sus originales puntos de vista y su sabia percepción del mundo hacen, a nuestro juicio, muy difícil redactar una reseña biográfica al uso. Y todos sus méritos «corrientes» quedan eclipsados por su mágica narración, tan llena de honestidad, como de humildad. Por ello, después de mucho reflexionar, hemos considerado que decir que estudió ingeniería química, que comenzó su carrera periodística en el Continental day-by-day Mail de París o que sirvió en l. a. RAF, cube bastante poco sobre Ted Simon. Lo que sí cube mucho de él queda patente tras los angeles lectura de este libro, convertido con toda justicia en un icono de los grandes viajes. Y es que el Mundo ha pasado por Ted, no Ted por el Mundo. Algo a lo que pocos mortales podemos aspirar

Ted Simon recorrió 126.000 kilómetros por forty five países a través de cordilleras, selvas, desiertos y océanos; viviendo con campesinos y presidentes, durmiendo en prisiones y en palacios, sufriendo guerras y revoluciones, experimentando las profundidades del miedo, las cimas de l. a. euforia y los angeles recompensa del amor. Fue tomado por espía, por un romántico estrafalario, por hacedor de mitos e incluso por Dios. Para Ted Simon, este viaje fue también un viaje de descubrimiento al centro de su espíritu. «Este libro ha sido mi inspiración » Ewan McGregor en The good way around «Posiblemente el mejor libro de viajes en moto jamás escrito» motorbike recreation «Lectura muy recomendable, llena de agudas observaciones y sabia percepción, pero no exenta de drama, tensión y peligro» la instances

Sample text

It was soon apparent our waiter had never visited the woodman on anything other than his scooter. To our increasing alarm he led us through a labyrinth of gradually narrowing streets. Just as we imagined we might become forever wedged in the suburbs of Agadir, a gaping doorway displaying a store of chopped wood appeared miraculously beside us. We squeezed out, haggled over the price with somebody’s cousin, and loaded fifty kilos in the last available space on the roof-rack. Finally, we were ready for the open road.

By the time we were loaded, it was already past midday. Our final task before departing was to commandeer the waiter, who knew a man, who knew another man, who had a cousin who sold wood. It was not far, he assured us. He kicked his scooter into life. ’ he called, and with that he was off. We followed the scooter through a series of pitted backstreets, the car rocking lazily as it dipped in and out of the potholes. It was soon apparent our waiter had never visited the woodman on anything other than his scooter.

Winter, then, is presumably when visitors are allowed the greatest degree of tolerance where madness is concerned, which was good, considering we were trying to force our pimped-up pickup down a series of right angles not much broader than a gutter. Whilst attempting to keep our bull bar from unhooking wooden shutters, ripping off door handles, crushing potted plants and flattening downpipes, we caught glimpses of the November rollers thundering toward the coast, topped with crouching surfers skimming the emerald sea.
