For those regular readers who may have noticed this burgeoning young (unofficial?) travel editor providing unparalleled insight into “off-the-road” destinations and situations, we bring another fine piece for those interested in following up on our earlier suggestion of Kenya as a suitable vacation-land.
In fact, it seems that there is a bustling underground economy, or bribery, as those stateside might think to call it. The author explains:

In Kenya a machine-gun-wielding guard suggested to a terrified Canadian aid worker: “Perhaps you would like to discuss this over tea?” The young Canadian was relieved: the difficulty could be resolved with some chai, which means both “tea” and “bribe”.
Well, readers, in search of underage sex workers, machine-gun-wielding overlords DO hold the key to your destiny… even if it sounds as simple as an oldfashioned tea-party.
