Thomas Kohnstamm, a writer for the Lonely Planet series, admits that he 'just made up' his guide to Colombia because he didn't want to go there.
And who can blame him? It sounds like a ghastly place. Well, as far as I can tell from this guide book I read....
Conveniently for Thomas, this media storm has blown up just before his book Do Travel Writers Go to Hell?, is published on April 22.
Lovely work Thomas.
