Classic Travel Writing Jeffrey Tayler

It’s easy to select nothing but new pieces as we try to find the best stuff out there on the Web. But often it’s nice to go back a little bit to find a piece of writing worthy of a half-hour or so of your time. Such is the case here with Jeffrey Tayler’s early piece on the Congo from the Atlantic Online (subscription required, sadly). Tayler is such a fixture in the travel and geopolitical writing scene now, it’s cool to take a look at one of his older pieces.
