US travelers are soon heading out for the slog home after Thanksgiving. The Rapid Traveler wishes all a smooth, safe trip, but a little reading material is always useful to have in reserve.
In China, business travelers take extreme precautions to avoid cyber-espionage (Washington Post), by Ellen Nakashima and William Wan. Makes The Rapid Traveler miss the fun of life in China.
How Yoga Won the West (New York Times), by Ann Louise Bardach. Interesting seed of the craze that has swept the US.
Iran’s Wet Blankets Put a Damper on Water-Park Fun (Wall Street Journal, subscription required), by Farnaz Fassihi. Great fun on the secular, playful tendencies in Iranian society.
