"They're all the same these places... guided tour of collective farms, National folk-dance company, Kindergarten where they sing you a patriotic song. You go along with it for a couple of days before you put the boot in. Insist on seeing the jails. My name's Owen by the way. I'm doing it for one of the colour mags."
