Just who is Kent Foster?

This is excerpted from a book a story of mine is in; I was working at the time.
    Kent Foster has had chest pains in Zimbabwe and Uruguay, giardia in Nepal, heat exhaustion in India, food poisoning in Bolivia, Indonesia, Burma, Syria, Mexico, and Spain and has suffered through 3 operations in Hungary, one in Denmark, and one in Vietnam.
    Kent works in the San Francisco Bay Area to compensate for lost money from a pickpocket in Turkey, speeding tickets in Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, and Hungary, and for really minor infractions in Ukraine, Norway, Poland, the Netherlands and Israel.
    He is single.

This is a modest achievement of mine:
I am in this book of travel stories
about a "minor operation" in Vietnam.
I have had other such mishaps abroad.
Have a look-see!
