Sandwiches Should Never Taste Like Cow Crap is a collection of accidental lessons from travel writer Dave Lowe. From his madcap overland journeys though Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, the horn of Africa, Nepal, India and the Maldives, Dave has learned: Don't ever wear black in India - If the gods are watching, smile back - Yak fur comes up easier than it goes down - If a rat runs over your foot, relax: you'll grow rich. After run ins with evil customs agents, Tatami Dragon Ladies, randy camels, Khmer Rouge soldiers, and more, could his size 13 shoes be spreading mayhem and chaos with every step? Only the Travel Gods know for sure. After reading his book, you won't be eating a sandwich without carefully scrutinizing the contents first.

"Dave Lowe spares you the humdrum of life on the road that plagues so much travel writing today. Instead, he cuts right to the chase with the sort of outrageous highlights you'd want to hear if you were lucky enough to saddle up next to him at the bar."
Doug Lansky, author of The Last Trout In Venice -- Review
"Dave Lowe's writing is fast, funny, and so full of life ....from now on everyone will do anything they can to imitate his style."
Tahir Shah, author of The Caliph's House etc. -- Review
"From chair throwing Frenchwomen to machete-wielding Vietnamese sandwich makers, Sandwiches Should NEVER Taste Like Cow Crap is proof positive that travel only starts to get real interesting when things go wrong."
Peter Moore, author of No Shitting in the Toilet and Swahili for the Broken Hearted -- Review
"Some travelers have to go out of their way to find adventure, but for Dave Lowe, the opposite seems to be *true: adventure seems to seek him out instead. Through his highly readable madcap episodes, readers are there, right beside him, taken along for one wickedly funny, turbulent flight."
Pilot Guides, Ltd., creator of the award winning television series, Globetrekker -- Review
"The world, according to Dave Lowe, is a dangerous place -- full of sadistic customs agents, decaying airplanes and toothlessly grinning old women. It is therefore also a wonderful, hilarious place, the kind of world you'd visit yourself if only you had Lowe's wit, open-mindedness and unerring penchant for disaster."
Matt Gross, The New York Times' Frugal Traveler -- Review
