Literature is driving tourism in many places.This post, from GalleyCat, caught my attention:
Dickens World, a theme park devoted to - you guessed it - the work and life of Charles Dickens, has had its opening delayed to May 25. The BBC reports that the one-month delay of the four-acre attraction in Chatham, Kent had been caused by a problem with the standard of some of the materials supplied for their interactive shows. A spokeswoman said: "Dickens World is a complex visitor attraction. Some of the elements for the interactive displays are coming from overseas and at a project meeting this morning it was decided that they weren't sufficiently finished to our standards."
Course, we'd have to have a literature first. And then we have to have a literature that captures the imagination. Trinidad could get away with such a theme park. Could it be cost-effective? Who knows? Worth, maybe, investigating.
