Nothing makes a traveler tremble more than having booked a holiday and, while having that dreamy cup of coffee over the papers, you spot your destination of choice glowing brightly on the list of ‘The World’s Most Expensive Cities!’ All of a sudden your thoughts of luxurious lounging evaporate in your coffee steam and suddenly you picture yourself splitting an overpriced cheeseburger over two meals.

These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
