‘The Eastern Bloc …”
So…the Eastern Bloc isn’t a country or anything, but a term used in the Cold-War to refer to the countries that were part of the Warsaw Pact. For an open-minded traveller that is pretty naive – these countries are more like distant cousins, each with their own charming characteristics and they should not scare you like a James Bond bad guy.
”On Sunday I wandered along Brick Lane in Shoreditch”
Euhm no, Brick Lane is not a street in Shoreditch. Brick Lane is a street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and Shoreditch is a district in the London Borough of Hackney. According to my co worker (who is born and bred in Tower Hamlets) they don’t want to be associated. At all. They are both in the East End though.
”I checked and the dolphin (or any other animal) retirement volunteer project is legit, they protect and care mistreated dolphins and they only let people swim with them to support the project. ”
So, you realise these animals have been treated bad and are old and YOU still want to swim with them? Seriously? If the caretakers really cared about them and if that dolphin was really free he wouldn’t be swimming around with your fat ass – no matter how cool you are to hang out with. Buy them some fish instead.
