National Geographic Traveler, Nov/Dec issue

I have a column in the new issue of Traveler on page 20. It was chosen by the blogger/editor of the Intelligent Travel blog and print section. "A Baptism Over Flame," about the Argentine asado, is excerpted from a longer verision I wrote in Column Writing a couple of years ago.

Upon seeing it, people keep asking me, "When were you in Argentina?" as if I had disappeared unannounced for a week or two without them noticing. But that's what's cool about travel writing; if the experience sticks, it could have happened a day ago or twenty years ago. In my case, the beef was transformative.
