MY LIFE AS A MEXICAN PIRATE: A TRUE STORY may just be the wildest travel memoir ever written.
It started as a joke, an Irish trio on a night out in costume. A debauched international pub-crawl followed, but the partying and exotic women weren’t enough, and what started off as a bit of fun slowly descended into madness. They would storm the most dangerous places on earth…and face the consequences.
Join Mark Zolo and his crew as they romp across four continents and skirt civil wars in Syria, Somalia & Cote D’Ivoire. This book has it all: suicide bombers, kidnappers, murderous lovers, police chases, earthquakes, giant inflatable fruit, light-sabres, fake moustaches, a pet chicken named Captain Cluck, romance, violence, comedy, and most of all adventure!
Chapter 1 sets the tone with an invitation:
“Grab a strong drink to warm the blood, me hearties, and gather round while I tell you a tale that will forever be burned into your pretty little skulls…”
