“Don’t Get Fooled Again” reaches the Falkland Islands

with 2 comments


In October last year, as regular readers of this blog will know,  several copies of “Don’t Get Fooled Again” were placed in glass jars, and floated seawards down the river Thames, with a note in English, French and Spanish asking anyone who found them to get in touch.

I had more or less given up hope of ever hearing anything further, when a package arrived this weekend containing two rather odd photographs. There was no letter or note, but the post-mark indicates that the package originated in the Falkland Islands, in the far-flung reaches of the South Atlantic.

I’m at something of a loss to know what to make of these two photos, but I’m including them in this post in the hope that someone reading this will be able to give me some ideas.


Update – 2nd April 2009 – as many readers have guessed, the above account is not wholly accurate…

    Will continue to ask around though
