Back of Beyond, Travels to the Wild Places of the Earth by David Yeadon.
Could not locate a current photo of this book, I did notice it seems to be available e-book wise.
Read in 1995
An account of some of the most unusual places that David Yeadon traveled to - 13 countries, some are generally considered common destinations, although the villages are out of the way places tourists do not usually visit. One of the better places was a village in the Canary Islands, where David and his wife lived among the locals for 4 months.
2 of the more unusual places were chronicled in chapter 14 - India, Rann of Kutch, and chapter 15 India, Getting to Goa.
Of all the places David visited, chapters 2 Haiti, 3 Costa Rica, 4 Gran Canaria and 5 Morocco - The Last Caravan, were the most enjoyable.
