Where streets are dirty, nobody rules and getting sick is risky

Last week I spent a lovely weekend in Donegal to see the end of summer. The weather was spectacular so we headed down to the beach where I lay on a sand dune with a book and my daughter and her friend jumped on foaming white waves dodging jellyfish while surfing small waves on their bodyboards. As we left, giant cardboard cutouts of feet reminded us to take our trash home with the words, “Leave only your footprints in the sand.”

We ate at Dungloe, still inundated with visitors, and marveled at the cleanliness. It’s a one street town full of pubs, souvenir shops and restaurants. You won’t find any rubbish. By contrast, I had to travel to Belfast last week and nearly wiped my feet as I got in the car after navigating dog poop, urine snaking out of alleyways and seagulls fighting over someone’s discarded Happy Meal was. Maybe we should invent a new game to make the place more palatable, where tourists can play point by point on the asphalt with ubiquitous lumps of chewing gum?
