About the Author Lina Zeldovich

Lina Zeldovich shimmied with belly dancers in Turkey, cooked a zebu stew in Madagascar, fished for piranhas in the Amazon, sipped a drink made from a venomous snake in Peru—and always lived to write the story. Along the way, she survived Siberian winter, Jordanian summer and Columbia J-School. She has written about her wanderings for NPR, Newsweek, AFAR, BBC, Atlas Obscura, The Boston Globe, Smithsonian, The Atlantic, TravelAge West, Orbitz, CheapTickets, Sierra Club, OZY, Saturday Evening Post, and in-flight magazines. She also holds several journalism awards, including NATJA’s gold and silver in the eco-travel category. She is a culture shock junkie, and she lives in New York so she can fly nonstop to almost anywhere.
