one burger a lone will cost 2000 Nara to talk of freshfries
just a quick sidenote:
its french fries not fresh fries.
They aint that fresh (unless you mean fresh out of the freezer) and they're terribly fattening.
I really believe Nigerians have enough health problems as it is right now and they dont have to add more in the form of junk food and extra calories in addition to the ones they already eat. The health system wont be able to cope.
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by EPOMA(m): 5:18am On Sep 19, 2009|
Walata, it is much apreciated you link that you posted but I also agree with some stuff that Ovie is coming up with. There is no need for everyone to get abusive. Am from Cross river state and happen to have a little bit of Knowledge on what is happenning there.Tinapa was built to be like dubai which i felt That was joke from beginning . Another Important thing is that Tinapa was not to be financed by the state goverment . The were bank Loans used for this project and the state governmet were suppose to be only garantor.
Until people living in Nigeria start to see things Properly and hold their leaders to account, we are finished. Right now there is no road to go into Calabar from any of the states. Tinapa was a big fraud by Donald Duke and Obasanjo. Duke took all the shares and gave some to Obasanjo and that is why the place will not function.
There is no state inNigeria that have structures that are up to scratch to any developed country. Nigeria no dey do well at
"The crux of the group’s anger against the Donald Duke administration on TINAPA was that "huge amounts of money being allocated to the 18 local government councils between 2002 to March 2007 from federation accounts, were diverted by Donald Duke, on the pretext that these local government councils had shares in TINAPA."
"There is nothing to show that these councils had shares in TINAPA. Nobody knows about the value of these shares. The group quoted the Transition Committee constituted by Senator Liyel Imoke, the governor of Cross River State, as saying that the debt burden of N70 billion was left behind by Duke’s administration, and that Duke claimed that these debts were accumulated by his government in order to finance TINAPA.
"Despite the claim that TINAPA was funded by private investors, there is evidence, established by the transition committee constituted by the government of the Cross River State to usher in the new administration, that Cross River has a debt overhang of over N70 billion. Donald Duke claims that these debts were accumulated by his government in order to finance TINAPA. This is mind-boggling, taking into account that TINAPA is supposed to be private sector- driven, "the group stated.
The document addressed to the president, Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, dated June 15 2007 and titled, Re: Petition For The Investigation of Mr. Donald Duke, Former Governor of Cross River State of Nigeria for Financial Impropriety And Abuse Of Human Rights, signed by Hon. Omor Egbeji, former speaker, Cross River State House of Assembly and Ubi Okoi Abam, questioned, "Who owns TINAPA? Is TINAPA owned by the government of Cross River State? Is TINAPA owned by the local government councils in Cross River State? Is Tinapa the property of the organised private sector in Nigeria, or foreign interest? Recently, we heard from the rumour mill that Donald Duke issued share certificates to local government councils. However, nobody knows about the value of these shares," the group lamented.
What irked the group the most was the salary of the former managing director, TINAPA, Mr. Sam Anani. The people alleged that the salary of Anani was N4 million monthly and the contract of Mr. Anani was for five years.
"Presently, TINAPA is being managed by a company owned by Donald Duke. It is instructive to note that Mrs. Duke and Gershom Bassey are members of the board of this company known as Southern Gun Limited. Just a day to the inauguration of the new administration, the appointment of the managing director of TINAPA, Mr. Sam Anani, was terminated. The contract of Mr. Anani was for five years. His salary was N4 million monthly. Despite the fact that the appointment of Mr. Anani has been terminated, he is still earning his salary in full."
Reacting to the sack of Anani as the managing director and chief executive of TINAPA Business Resort, the group said it was very necessary because the erstwhile chief executive was in charge during the first phase which involved construction. The new hand was to take over from the second phase which is operational.
However, a press release signed by Frank Inyang for Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, made available to journalists, was silent on the monthly salary of N4 million paid to Anani. It stated, though, that the governor inherited debts from the previous administration and that the debts were manageable ones, because they were tied to visible developmental projects such as TINAPA Business Resort and Obudu Ranch Resort.
Cross River Movement for Justice prayed the president to direct the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices Commission to investigate all petitions against Donald Duke, his wife and cohorts, with a view to telling the people of Cross River State the true owners of TINAPA."
this the story of tinapa for now
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by EPOMA(m): 6:12am On Sep 19, 2009|
For all those of you who think that The 70 Billion naira($450m) spent by Donald Duke at Tinapa was money well spent. I will prove you wrong . That money would have done better and more .
Please check the links below for what that money used in Tinapa would have built and that is why I just hate julius Berger who built a lot of poo in Nigeria yet they are respected by the Government and the people.

I think we as 21st century people should forget Nigeria standard and bring in the people that can plan and change our societies. We have to go back to basics. What is the insentives in Tinapa which they have a price tag of I think $400,000 for a shop. they give out there are dreamers
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by vanitty: 7:30am On Sep 19, 2009|
must-a-far, you go with what you have, we have abundant animals in Africa, so obviously we go with that or what do you expect
just like the historical buildings are mainly the tourist attractions in London besides have u ever been to oshogbo, abeokuta , idanre hills? Check the website, We are more than "simply wild life watching"

Epoma, the case is like medicine after death, the deed is done, you either patrol it or not. Too be honest I will rather they spent that much on a resort than it resting in a switerzland bank account. In a perfect setting things wll be done differently but well . . . . . .

|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by AjaraEwuro: 10:17am On Sep 19, 2009|
silly silly fellows- criticising for the sake of criticising-
Let me ask u-
Where is Newswatch magazine today? Where is The News, Where are the so called national critics, where are they? Is it not high time to realise that their criticism hasnt taken them nor the country anywhere? Why, because their criticism is baseless, purely opinionated and highly tribalistic and racisit. Why should we then listen to baby critics on NairaLand, reading most of their posts just churn pure hatred out of my mind- hatred for the silly things they write, hatred for the way they think, hatred for the fact that they are lost in the diaspora and looking for alternative places to vent their anger on the system which sent them out of their mother land- a system which made them to become the slave to the white man, the system which made them re enslave themselves, and they havent checked their minds to realy see that they have enslaved themselves -
the recession is biting hard, they cant go forward, they cant go backward, so they pick on Nigeria- criticising anything Nigeria- poo faces- someone says they sent 70billion home- so what? you are the only source of income for the country? If you like send it home or not- why wont you send it home? Wont you pay pack the thousands of dollars you borrowed to fake your visa to go abroad? Dont pay and see how juju will repartraite you back home? Listen, do you think the citizens of those countries act the way you do about your country? Did they start the way you do?
In Nigeria - build roads- they shout - we dont need roads
In Nigeria - build airports- they shout - we dont need airports
In Nigeria- build Tinapa - they shout - we dont need Tinapa
In Nigeria- send satellite to space - they shout- no - we dont need it
So, what do we need, they shout, we are all hungry, sick, mad lots, give us food on the table and forget about development- how sick these people think? They shout, we only need food, food, food or we die - are these people human beings??
Honestly- these goats needs a change of their thinking minds.
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by vanitty: 10:45am On Sep 19, 2009|
Quite the truth though
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by EPOMA(m): 1:51pm On Sep 19, 2009|
Please which road have they built that was critisized, The Satelite that they launch, is it working? No. All what Nigeria do is to hold meeting of past president everymonth. This are the same people that could not rule when the were president. Do me a favour randomly call 5 Nigerian and ask the their Zip code or post code, If you get 3 correct then there is a positive change. Why I brought this up is becos as a country we do no touch the basic thing that leads toward development . The Government always get involved with things that does not concern a government in any other country except it is running a socialist government.
Nigeria alway do things so that the would not work, Buhari mentioned this in one of his campaigns. a lot of projects now in Nigeria are given to China to Built but if you go to China , most of it projects are given to the west, do we ask the reason why.Most projects in Nigeria are low standard, examples are The abuja airport which looks like a college in Uk or the USA, that is not how airports are built in this days. Road in developed countries are built with concrete and the followed by butimen on top which gives it everlasting state but the day I went to Tinapa, there are pot holes already on the road that leads to the placewhich has not fully open. Everytime in Nigeria , all you here is rehabitilation of roads, why because the road are not built properly with drainage. Please tell me any local police station that has a computer on the counter that keeps records of people or what is happening in the station. Please let go back to Basics before anything, can police give tourist direction in Nigeria.
Turn to car registration, how many Pilot 1 or escourt 1 cars do we have in Nigerian, no body can know , people just do things above the law, there no way we should still have those sort of stuff happenning in a country Like Nigeria, no records , no Law and then we think that we are developing.
How can Otedula or Dangote be part of the stock exchange when they have so many companies listed there and we expect them not to manipulate the share. Nigeria is not ready for anything.
My summary is Until the Government in the 3 tier level becomes accountable to the citizens, get into projects like drainage and sewage systems ,provide housing through laising with the private sector, built roads and create and impose law.
Tinapa is an Elephant projects, you want people to come to calabar, do we have housing for the people that will come to work there.
Nigeria is one of the countries that it is regarded by CIA website to have the longest time to clear a container in the port with 16 agencies that will collect bribe and fustrate your import. So if you have a business in Tinapa, do you think people will be happy to spend 1 month to clear container and pay so much bribe to police to get their container to Tinapa. Big companies dont have time for this kind of poo. So Nigeria will continue to be a joke until all thess basic things are sorted out .
We have to go back to basic and find out how other economies work
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by EPOMA(m): 1:54pm On Sep 19, 2009|
I do agree with you But for future references, lets correct the way we do things in Nigeria and it willbe better
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by AjaraEwuro: 2:23pm On Sep 19, 2009|
You do reason with one side of your mouth open for fresh air!
What has knowing zip code or post code got to do with governance or development?? Go to NIPOST website and see the codes- if people dont know them, what has that got to do with what we are talking about here? Are you saying everyone in America or Europe knows their post or zip codes off head? What are you saying EPOMA?
Which roads havent they built that have been criticised? unless you havent been on NairaLand when necessary - Satellite, you ask if it is working now- machines do fail, and if the satellite fails, is it peculiar to Nigeria? Nigerians giving projects to China - so what? Go to Europe- majority of the electornic goods there are from the same China, is it not only in Nigeria that we discriminate against Chinese made things, just like you are doing now? So, you are saying all projects in China are handled by the west, please list them or shut up.
You went to Tinapa and saw pot holes, and that has now made it what? a low standard edifice? Did you see other nice ventures there? Did you see the Nollywood studio, did you see the AMBER hotels, did you see the water parks, only because you saw a few pot holes and you - without any engineering degree or pedigree, come here to say it is low standard- how do you think? Abuja airport looks like a college in America? thats not airports are built? what way are functional airports built? what are you talking about? Is the airport functioning or not? how many years ago had it been built? Have you been to the new MMA 2 in Lagos? List here what is wrong with Abuja airport or shut up, you think like a child.
you just postulate a few theories in your mind and bang- thats the way it is- your own way is how it should be. why why why??

|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by EPOMA(m): 4:26pm On Sep 19, 2009|
We criticize the roads because there is no proper roads that have been built , you drive through 3rd mainland bridge and it is like you are swimming in a car, is that bridge leveled? only in Nigeria. The first day I went on 3rd mainland , I was just scared, the amount of gaps on the bridge not acceptable.
Abuja airport or the new MMa2 is not up to scratched compared with Dubai, Singapore and the new Qatar airport.
Dubai Airport http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DXB.jpg
You ask about contract , China awards contract to germans
The early we start seeing things like a country that wants to move ahead the better , most of out projects are not up to scratch. am not here to call people names. What am saying is that with the money spent at Tinapa we could have don better and more things
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by Eziachi: 4:33pm On Sep 19, 2009|
Your question about zip or post code surely reveals your level of ignorance of what development means. How can a modern country progress without a recognise postal code system? How on earth will you run a business? Some of the graduate robbers in Nigeria today can thrive through small internet businesses or run a shop selling online only if there is recognised and functioning zip code where you can post thing to residentila/business house without owning a shop. When was the last time you bought or sell anything on Ebat for example from Nigeria or post to Nigeria?
It is small things like this that can make a change in a country. How believable is it that a ccountry like Nigeria has no record of birth/death of its citizens and they building Tinapa. If you have record of birth, the idea of census should be banished to ancient time where it belong and no one will manipulate population figures anymore because at a click of a button you get the nation's correct population figures. You don't need to set a time for voter registration either anymore as any person will take his birth cert and get registered once reached the age of voting and this is all year round and from year to year.
Nigeria is building Tinapa but their police force had no record of crime and criminals, or those prosecuted in the criminal justice system, therefore no record citizen's criminal record. That is why Ibori was able to get away from a past conviction for a theft years back in Abuja because there we no record in the system, no record place of abode of residence, as people move about in Nigeria like cattles without record and people are killed or get lost forever and no one will notice because there were no record of people. This is the tiny things that lays the foundation for development and not meaningless projects that govt n'tget involve in the first place like tinapa.
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by EPOMA(m): 5:28pm On Sep 19, 2009|
Please God will bless you forever. You and Ovie. Thank you for helping me on this matter. A country that the minister of justice said Ibori was clear by EFCCand the next day Efcc denied clearing Ibori. In a civilised world , That andoka or what his name is would have resign.Nigeria must go back to basics. I have friends in the local government level , most of the contracts they do is Borehole on the local government level. Look at NTA , even christ embassy TV channel work better and have better equipments.
I dont have much to say any , thanks guys
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by OvieE: 6:32pm On Sep 19, 2009|
God bless you too. The truth need to be told you know.
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by OvieE: 6:51pm On Sep 19, 2009|
The truth of the matter is that I do not think Nigeria has airport. It is just a place for small planes to touchdown. And Lagos airport, please don't let me go their. For the first time my sisters went to Nigeria on getting off the plane, they said they made a mistake coming to Nigeria because it was so hot and smelling dusty. I see the reason why Delta airline do not stay in Lagos more than two hours. Let not go to airports area becuase Nigeria is no match to North or Southern Africa nott to talk of the west. What kind of airport that has no road and have all kind og people in there. Checkpoint everywehere in Nigeria. Police stopped and my sister on way to warri and they refused to let us go because they discover that we foreigner that they practicaly ask us to give themdollars and not naira. Thank God my friend that know Nigeria system able to free us after along hour of talking and arguing. Benin city and Lagos road, god forbid. death trap that claimed people lives in our present. Two cars flight over the road and into a river. Road is so bad that I sweat not driver if I do go to Nigeria next but what is killing me that Nigeria airlines cannot be trusted. Army robbers, two times we mearly ran into them. God bless those who told us to turn around on time. Please let me stop here for now because the name Nigeria drive nut.
|Re: Lovely Pictures Of Tinapa Water Park. by OvieE: 6:56pm On Sep 19, 2009|
poster and others this and tell me what is wrong with that country call Nigeria. And by the way, the you hear of the fighting that broke-out "Three Feared Dead, 60 Injured As Shiites Protest In Kaduna, Kano
Of phone guns, Coca-Cola and Nigeria
By Reuben Abati
"Look can you point that your handset away from my face?", "What 's the matter with you?", "Who knows whether you are an assassin on the payroll of an enemy? Have you not heard that there are phone guns in Nigeria now? The Police Commissioner in Cross River State has had to issue a special alert advising members of the public to be very careful. The man in front of you who is making a phone call and chatting heartily may be an assassin waiting to put a bullet through your heart."
"Wonderful. This is what my Pastor calls the sign of end-times."
"Look, I am discussing something serious. Can we leave your Pastor out of this? "
"You'd soon discover that what this country needs is actually prayers and deliverance. It keeps stumbling from one problem to the other. Kidnapping, armed robbery, Niger Delta crisis, collapse of the financial sector, and now phone guns, "
"Okay, when we manage to hold a National Conference and we all agree that the country needs deliverance, we'd ask you to send for your Pastor. In the meantime, I am worried about the increasing crisis of personal safety in this country. With killer-phones in people's hands, nobody is safe anymore. Don't you know what that means? In fact, the police say the phone is available in the Nigerian market. It is imported from Italy and Yugoslavia. It is a .22 calibre weapon. It can fire four shots in quick succession and the way to pull the trigger is to pretend to be dialing numbers 5 to 8 on the handset."
"Jesus is Lord"
"What is the matter with you?"
"I said Jesus is Lord"
"What does that mean?"
" I am agreeing with what you said. If the Nigerian Police already know that the killer-phone is in Nigeria, what it looks like, how it is operated, so what are theydoing about it? What is the point in lamenting publicly? It is their job to work with the Customs, the SSS, and other security agencies to fish out the importers of the deadly phone and then arrest those behind it."
"Which Police? The Nigerian Police? Which Customs? The same Customs that says it cannot arrest the wives of prominent Nigerians who bring contraband into the country? Which security agencies? The same ones who did not know that Nuhu Ribadu came into Nigeria until they read about it in the newspapers the following day? "
"But one thing government can do is to ban the importation of the phones into the country and to insist that whoever has it must obtain a licence."
"Tell me one banned item that is not available in the Nigerian market. The best way to promote a product in Nigeria is to ban it. The same people who issue the ban order will grant import waivers to their friends and you would be surprised that the product will flood the market."
"Okay, there should be massive public enlightenment. They should tell us what the gun looks like."
"It is slightly bigger than the normal phone, and heavier."
"You mean it looks like Turaya phone. So if I see anyone carrying a Turaya phone, I should duck like George Bush. "
"I think we will all be better off wearing bullet proof vests. Imagine if the phone gun comes with a silencer."
"But let the security agencies do their work."
"They say the gun has serious destructive power"
"What are you saying? Every gun has destructive power."
"Everything is going wrong with this country. Yar'Adua should do something. Let the man do something"
"He is doing something. After all, the Minister of State for Power says the current electricity generation and distribution level is 2, 450 Mwts. "
"What I don't like is when government officials tell lies. Where did he get that from? They just lie with statistics. 6, 000 mega watts, 2, 450 Mwts. Why 2, 450, why not 2, 500? I live in this country and I know that most Nigerians are used to having no electricity supply. A friend took her children on holiday abroad. The children didn't want to return. They said didn't want to go back to the country where there is no light. "
"Don't mind that Minister of State. Where was he when the National Assembly was thrown into darkness for almost a whole day due to power outage? And even the Presidential Villa in Abuja?"
"Looks like that National Assembly is jinxed. Last week, a lawmaker slapped a security man there. This week, the electricity supply system packed up."
"Send your Pastor to them. They may need his services."
"You know because of this electricity thing, Coca-Cola is shutting down its concentrate plant in Nigeria"
"It has done so already. It is not just this electricity thing. The cost of doing business in Nigeria is too high. Okay Coca Cola used to have its concentrate plants in two places in Africa: Nigeria and Swaziland. Before closing down the one in Ota, Ogun state, they must have looked at the figures and arrived at the conclusion that it is wasteful producing in Nigeria. The country is facing massive de-industrialisation simply because we can't get the equation right. Michelin is gone. Dunlop has relocated. We now import all brands of tyres. All the warehouses of old have been turned into prayer houses by your pastor and his friends. Now to drink a bottle of Coke, we have to depend on concentrate from Swaziland. And can you blame Coca Cola? Look at Ota. The place is even inaccessible. To get to Ota sometimes, you have to spend up to eight hours in the traffic."
"The only thing I know about Swaziland is its annual Reed Dance and the fact that the king can take any virgin of his choice as wife, and he does that every year. You need to see those girls during the Reed Dance when they bare it all for His Majesty Mswati III's sole pleasure."
"I believe what is relevant to this discussion is that Swaziland offers a better business environment, while Nigeria is no longer attractive. We need to do something about the economy."
"Come on. We are doing something."
"The CBN and the President are planning to launch new polymer notes in the N5, N10 and N50 denominations. That is something."
"And how does that address the problem of Nigeria's failing economy?"
"The new CBN governor will get to put his own signature on Naira notes. And you know, the polymer note is very rugged. I have seen market women washing the N20 note that is made with polymer with detergent soap. You can even iron it."
"It is obvious that you don't know anything about economics. Just save your breath."
"Go and sit down. Everybody is an economist in Nigeria."
"Like ASUU, SSANU and NASU. There is an economic logic to their fight with the government."
"Demand and supply"
"Look can you just leave this matter of economics. But I think it is a shame that President Yar'Adua has not deemed it necessary to declare an emergency in the education sector and take on the crisis as a Presidential affair. In the end, he is the man to be blamed for keeping Nigerian undergraduates in the state school system at home for about three months."
"A whole semester."
"Looks like we will end up with a whole session."
"Nigeria's education sector has been taken over by Boko Haram fundamentalists. You know I said the other time, that the people we really need to worry about are the Boko Haram activists in policy-making positions. "
"I was talking about the economy"
"And I thought I advised you to keep your opinion to yourself on that subject."
"No, you think about this."
"In Owerri, Imo state visually impaired college graduates invaded the Government House with their walking sticks to protest what they called the insensitivity of the state government to their plight."
"Yes, they say they don't have jobs. And that their colleagues who are still in school are not being paid their bursary allowances by the state government."
"I read that the physically challenged adopted a similar measure recently in Jalingo, Taraba sate. They too staged a protest over the non-payment of allowances."
"Something like the revolt of beggars."
"It is more about the failure of government to cater for its citizens. When you have the physically challenged taking on government and the able-bodied also protesting, then it is possible to measure the extent of social alienation in the country. And I dare say the matter is serious."
"The physically challenged are not having it easy. Do you know that in some states now, state officials go out onto the streets and they physically deport such persons to their states of origin."
"What happened to citizenship?"
"Which citizenship? Some states have a beggars unwanted policy."
"They don't want beggars and yet government cannot create jobs, and even the companies that are supposed to create jobs are closing shop and relocating to other African countries. Nothing quite makes sense anymore."
"Well, Gani was a great man. That makes sense to me. May his soul rest in peace. "
"But what was that thing I read about burying him in a 14-carat gold casket, the same type that was used to bury Michael Jackson."
"Do you have a problem with that? A man has the right to choose how he wants to go to heaven. In Ghana, some people insist on being buried in a casket made like an aeroplane."
"Yeah, but gold? "
"Gani was an aristocrat, you must know. His grandfather Lisa Alujonu was a legend in Ondo. His own father helped to propagate the Islamic religion in the town And he was himself a legend of our time. You better go and do something with your own life, so you can leave this world the way you want."
"The good thing is that he used his wealth, material and intellectual, to help the poor."
"Now you are talking."
"But I hope his children will not quarrel over his Will and that they will not turn his legacy into a matter for litigation like some other families."
"Look. You are on your own now, "

You want Nigeria to be like Singapore, Dubai- poo faces - when have you paid your tax last in Nigeria?

The poverty you are facing is too much and you do know what is good and bad. Nigeria hvae not to compare with. No airport, road, good houses, school, health sector, food, governments, monitoring and caring for exciting thing and more. You need to reborn becuase your head is not currect loser, poverty striking poo. Please do not cry ok.

Tinapa water park can not save Nigeria. Our main priority should be stabilizing power supply and not praising what is indirectly designed for the elite.@zomby, may God bless u for posting this comment.

i don’t think AjaraEwuro knows wat the time is.
I understand where he is coming from. his argument is based on his level of exposure.
b4 i came 2 the uk, i always believed that potholes were normal and whenever it wants 2 rain, power has to go off.
AjaraEwuro wat we r trying 2 sink in2 your head is this:
No country stands when the people don’t have the basic of life. it is your right 2 have good school, jobs, good road, water, good medical facility etc. All theses stuffs isn’t luxury.
Tinapa is a good idea, but will only work if the goverment is accountable, and provide the nigerian people with the basics .
this is 2009 , and we r the 7th higest producer of crude oil.
My brother spoke abt paying tax. I will only pay tax if I know the government I pay tax to can b held accountable. I will b silly 2 give my hard earned money 2 a government that depend on public fun 2 enrich them self.

This is quite an interesting conversation, and an eye-opener to different sorts of thinking from Nigerians, at home and abroad.
I just wish to get some clarification of things - @fegflu, you have said more than once in this thread that Tinapa is not about tourism:
the issue is walataa concept of tourism in calabar and donald duke definition.
I got a question for you, @fegflu - no harm meant just a simple question: What exactly is toursim? Just a simple definition?
I would also like to direct this at @kobojunkie (I hope this is the same kobojunkie whose posts I have avidly followed here before now as they have always made sense) : Leading on from the above question, what is/are the diffference(s) between tourism and recreation?
Thank you both ever so kindly.
