Today's Telegraph UK "Celebrity Travel" section features Benjamin Zephaniah. When asked, "What do you need for a perfect holiday?" he replied, "Good vegan restaurants – I find them on www.happycow.net – and clubs where I can dance with the local ladies. If you want to get to know a country, talk to the women. Men just say everything is fine. The women give you a much better feel of what is really happening."
