On the road to Timbuktu

An e-mail arrives seeking my signature on a statement of opinion to support a bid by Hay-on-Wye to be twinned with Timbuktu. Apparently, there is competition for this prestigious position from Glastonbury and York. These three places have arrived on the shortlist from a group of 50 applicants.

Who would have thought that a city in the West African nation of Mali situated on the trans-Saharan caravan route would have attracted so much interest from towns and Cities all over the UK? Next time I go to the Hay on Wye Book Festival I will be watching out for camels.
