Traveling Tony, Redux
Fresh from a four-day culinary vacation in Iceland (no word on whether he dined on that Icelandic delicacy, rotten shark), Mayor Anthony A. Williams (D) is already planning his next big trip: a 19-day jaunt to Africa.
The "cultural and trade mission," set for May, is scheduled to include stops in South Africa, Ghana and Senegal. The mayor hopes to take a 55-member delegation of business, government and community leaders, put them up at four- and five-star hotels and take them on a variety of deluxe weekend sidetrips, including a two-night visit to a South African game park where the luxury safari tents rent for up to $975 per person per night.
How to pay for it all? No worries. The mayor has asked corporate donors to pony up $25,000 or $40,000 to join him on the trip, his first official visit to the continent. You can read more in today's Post.
