Travel Scandal

The strange story of the Lonely Planet author who admits he plagiarized and made up sections and that he once wrote a travel guide without visiting the country:

"They didn't pay me enough to go Colombia,'' he said.

"I wrote the book in San Francisco. I got the information from a chick I was dating - an intern in the Colombian Consulate.

"They don't pay enough for what they expect the authors to do.''

Oh, I see, so it's their fault.
