I just finished reading Long Way Down, about Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman's trip from Scotland to Cape Town, SA. Great book. Has anyone seen the series? Thinking about picking it up on Amazon. Long Way Round, as others have said, is far better. You can rent it off Netflix and it is an incredible journey. I'm highly embarassed about their time in Canada though. Some idiot gangsta-wannabe white kid bumped Ewan from behind on the freeway.
