We take a break from our trip through the colours of the rainbow this week, dear listener, with a trip around (some of) the capitals of the world.
We hope it proves to be as much of a journey of discovery as it was for us as we share some very heart-felt and often quite puzzling celebrations of some of the world’s great cities.
Special thanks are due to our Canadian ambassador for finding a great 80s tribute to her very own capital city.

Thing of the Week
This week’s thing should appeal to both the heavy drinker and historical geographer. The Bar Globe by Zoffoli offers the chance to inform and educate your guests on the subject of the 17th century view of the world while becoming increasingly inebriated. Most importantly, it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
