  •  I haven't seen one myself in quite a while (7+ / 0-)

    They've changed. Instead of hiring people who know the countries intimately and speak the language or have long association, they just hire guidbook writers to do a month long or two drive by. Or that's the way it was in 04 or 05 last time I read much.

    I do contribute to TT for years now, and often they are good for breaking news, sometimes clueless on safety. For South East Asia I now spend more time on Travelfish as they live and have traveled extensively throughout the region and thier info is up to date. Also they are entirely online, guidbooks are old tech.

    I sent an email.
