9781505948530: Noodle Trails, a travel memoir: Fair Trade, Dung Trade and Travels in Thailand and beyond

Ex-comic and struggling Fair Trade importer loses nearly everything and goes wandering in search of solace, mangoes, and food for the soul. Eileen is off to Thailand, like many winters before. Then it was sun, sand and samples of souvenirs, but not now: she's broke, alone and discouraged. This trip could be her last. She bids farewell to her trading partners, producers of such products as elephant dung paper, geckos woven from recycled newspapers, patchwork fashions from surplus tsunami aid, brass jewellery from old bombshells, and millions of things from coconuts. This first-hand account show what one woman can do in a world of economic elephants. Travel journals and a sense of humour are the basis of this eccentric memoir and personal love letter to all the Thai people and ex-pats who befriended her. Best of all, she's wrong: it’s not a farewell journey after all. Tsunamis, heartbreaks, and other losses can be survived: hers, theirs or anyone's. Noodle Trails contains edible insects, tough questions, sarcasm ambushes of poignancy, and an awful lot of elephant dung.
