Subject: Stratford Tourism
Because we had not done so for a dozen years, Cydne and I took the
dreaded Guide Friday coach tour of Stratford. I was appalled by the
amount of misinformation given to tourists as facts.
I want to do something about this, but alas, did not take notes at the
time, and I recall only a few egregious examples. I'd like your help.
If you have taken the tour in the past couple of years (the limit is
because I don't see any reasons to censure them for past sins), and
noted any distortions of the facts or outright mistakes, please let me
know. I shall compile a list, then see what I can do.
All the best,
