Not everyone had correctly predicted the election of the newest U.S. President Donald Trump, as most people thought that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 elections and would be the next president of the nation. However, one of the things that Doug Levitt learned during his thirteen years traveling through the United States, more than 120,000 miles, is that there is a lot of alienation in the country that people is not aware of. He predicted correctly who would be the next nation leader in the white house, and, he is considered, probably correctly, to be the man alive with the broadest and most extensive knowledge of the American society and its culture.
Traveling through all these years in Greyhound buses is amazing. Levitt’s been doing this for Doug’s newest research, and to develop a book he calls the Greyhound Diaries. Through his constant traveling and meeting new cultures around the nation, most of which most Americans aren’t even aware that exists, is something that is really amazing if considering the amount of work that Doug Levitt has put into the development of his book.Everyone is keen to read the pages of that research, stated an American interviewed about Doug Levitt and his Greyhound Diaries.
For those who are not aware of the reasons behind the 13-year study that Doug Levitt is conducting, it goes way beyond the urge to get to know the United States as a whole. According to the author himself, when you use these Greyhound busses, you are using them because you cannot afford a better option. That had opened his eyes when he began to use these public transportation systems. He met all kinds of people, and learned more in these thirty years about the average population of this country than he had during his entire life. According to Levitt, it is not an art anymore, but a way of life that he adopted for himself.Among the unusual people that he met during his years traveling in public transportation of the Greyhound kind, he met a neo-Nazi, or at least, a former one. Being a jew, Doug Levitt admitted that he was very scared of the encounter, but the man was actually a fine person.Stay tuned for Levitt’s Greyhound Diaries release.
