THIS IS A PUBLIC INFORMATION ANNOUNCEMENT - WARNING, WARNING!!
Restaurant: Las Sirenas in the Paseo in Puerto Alcúdia. Couple having a meal. Another couple finish meal, join the first couple to enjoy a drink together. Innocent enough?
The couple that joined the first couple finish drink. Then go. Bill for their meal?
First couple is presented with a 50 euro ticket.
First couple doesn’t have to pay after intervention of other diners.
Watch out. Perhaps I’ll give details of what they look like. Listen up, lowlife, there’s always some stroppy bastard on the Internet who’ll get you. Watch out.
Meantime, which country can lay claim to having the worst tourists?
No prizes for guessing it’s the Brits. But, one of this blog’s favourites, Jeremy Clarkson (a favourite because he knows how to rant; really, he doesn’t play at it, he does it) disputes this. The Russians, he reckons. To give you a flavour, he finishes his piece in “The Sunday Times” thus: “A lout from Liverpool may vomit on you and that’s nasty. But a Russian would happily garnish your pizza with a dash of polonium.”
In recognition of this contribution to fraternal tourist diplomacy, I’ve linked “The Times” site.
Pop Quiz: JK’s Spanish hit was “Una Paloma Blanca”. Today’s title is stretching it a bit. But we’re back to a previous Pop Quiz band. Who did “A Royal Scam”?
