On their travels from Mexico through Guatemala, Hounduras, Ecudaor, Bolivia and Chile to Patagonia, the authors of this book expound their revelatory and poetic theories on the new life they find on the road and about cultures they discover. Dreaming about the end of the drugs war at the bottom of a swimming pool in Central America and learning to live without their English preconceptions, the authors provide an account of their travel experiences in Latin America.

In 1991 two friends sold everything they had and went west. From Mexico through Central America to the end of the Andes, Charlotte Du Cann and Mark Watson recount their picaresque adventures of the road and many encounters along the way – with wise women, romantic communists, magicians, lovers and fellow nomads. They take us on an unforgettable journey, constantly challenging their old cultural maps, as they traverse the huge, unpredictable landscape of Latin America from the pyramids of the Yucatan to the roaring Pacific, moving from the quick-silver quiet of Quito to the devil's drama of Bogotá, towards the twilight zone of Practically Patagonia.
Breathtakingly original and hugely funny, 'Reality is the Bug that Bit Me in the Galapagos' is the journal of their troubadour life. It is an exploration both of human nature and the open territory of magic and spirit.
