anyway, bonus points to the man who wrote that letter about the accordion playing by our friends from the east. it is well known that as well as water boarding the CIA would sometimes go to such extreme measures as bringing in such people into the interrogation rooms for the extraction of information from hardened terrorists. If that failed they would then resort to Country and Irish
apologies i have just seen that last paragraph i wrote embarrassing to say the least. I meant to say its annoying that the same people come up to you every day dont remember you giving them a couple of euro earlier and then abuse you when you say you already did.

I have edited my earlier post !

I've never actually noticed a quiet carriage before in its official status, but coming down over Christmas, the train host was quite direct when someone onkly turned his headphones down from "unbelievably loud" to "inappropriately loud"
