Experience

D.W. Walker, the author of this text, is a cranky old guy who lives in a cheap hostel in Iquitos, Peru. He is a bum who makes a living by begging donations from friends and strangers so he can continue writing medium famous books. So far, thanks to friends, this month's rent is almost paid and Mr. Walker had a couple of baloney sandwiches for dinner last night. Mr. Walker is an operational specialist with a particular interest in innovation and the use of creative and business processes of finding a box of Kraft Dinner.

His primary work focus is on making money by writing travel books for the world and newspaper articles about topics of interest to those visiting the Peruvian Amazon jungle. He has worked for organisations …. Well, no. Most recently, uh, he's still a bum traveling around the world writing books. Celeste Young is simply important, though not related to this book.

This book is a lot of work, but I like it. I had no idea sneaking a Motoons book past the gatekeepers would be this much fun.
