Tom Lutz can't stop moving and in Drinking Mare's Milk on the Roof of the World, he attempts to tell us why as he recounts his journeys. In his travels to more than 100 countries – some dangerous, some surprisingly not – he finds that the more places he goes, the more the world leaves him a little bit lost. Even so, he does have one trick that helps him find his way no matter his environs, and that is to look for the people with the kind eyes and go to them. It is a practice he says we do on a daily basis, whether it's a trip to our local drugstore, or halfway around the world, kind eyes will always help you find your way.
