Ran across a sad bit of news last night: PG Tenzing died of cancer in Sikkim on Monday July 26. I never knew him, but last year I read and reviewed his book, Don't Ask Any Old Bloke For Directions: A Biker's Whimsical Journey Across India , here.
As you can see, I was critical of the book. But nevertheless, while reading it I got a sense of the spirit of this man, his integrity and wide-ranging interests. (And in fact the substance of my criticism was really that there should have been more of that in the book).
My loss, that I never met PG Tenzing.
