"In the same way that the detective movie is a fantasy about city life, the spy movie is a fantasy about tourism."I think that's true, and I think that the inverse is likewise true: when I am traveling, in my mind I am a spy. And not just a secret agent sort of spy either-- I'm on the ground trying to gather intelligence. How many people work here? What is the political mood? How do you, sir, feel about X? Unlike bullshit New York Times columnists I try to go beyond cab drivers for my sources, although, like most good detectives or spys I find that bartenders are frequently good sources.
