Don’t Go There

Adam Fletcher

ISBN 9781976969966

When I did my ‘Sunday Rant’ last week, about writers advising to avoid certain places, I was going to include some reference to this book, which I received for Christmas.

What I was expecting were the usual whines about overcrowding, over-touristification and general rip-offs, but it turned out not to be like that at all. In fact, it turned out to be a rather well-written travelogue of the places tourists don’t go … indeed, some that most people might not have ever heard of, let alone consider.

What he’s done is actively seek out and visit such places ,,, and almost everywhere, he’s found, even in the armpits of the universe, people who are friendly and willing to help.

What it shows, above all else I think, that, even though you find yourself in the grottiest, smeggiest place on Earth … people are still the same, wherever you go.
