Imagine a "White Man's Burden" imperialist was transported to the here and now and forced to write his thoughts on the sorry state of international travel (no coolies?!). That's the conceit here, and "Vic Darkwood" does an admirable job of skewing himself, the British, and the last 200 years of tourism. A good Sunday read before you explore the Dark Continent. Which at this point is probably Antarctica.
