Anywhere you can walk slowly down the street without being shot at by Western contractors. Anywhere you can reorganise buildings without permission. Anywhere you can stand still without being questioned. Anywhere you can find abandoned beds. Anywhere the movie you always wanted to see is playing. Anywhere you legged it. A Mis-Guide To Anywhere is a utopian project for the recasting of a bitter world by disrupted walking.
You’ll never have to buy another guidebook again… (The Times, 15 April 2006)
