Travelling on business, a weekend in the foothills. Expectations of winding drives on hill roads, with the smell of the crouching forests. Morning in a wood-walled room, curtains parted for a glimpse of the river far below.

Instead of which ...

Reality check – coffee served by a surly personage, accompanied by salt. Salt?! (Reminiscent of the Injun in Leon Uris’ ‘Battle Cry’, “Whatcha want, Chief, eggs in your beer?!”)
