A true reflection

Letter in today’s Irish Times

Robbery, bribery and delays

Madam, – In your travel supplement of August 2nd, Manchan Magan exhorts us all to travel to the Congo with him. “We will probably be robbed,” he writes, “and it’s inevitable that we will be asked for bribes and will have to face significant delays.

Sure we can stay in Dublin and experience the very same without the added expense of a flight to Africa.

Yours etc,

Poddle Park, Kimmage, Dublin 12.
