イギリスロンドンで今夜の宿が見つからない!

海外で宿が見つからない時は

現地人に聞くのが1番?


そんなわけで、デリーに到着。デリーはロンドンデリーとも呼ばれる地域。 これはいわゆる宗教問題や政治問題の絡みで、地域内にいる人にとっては「ロンドンデリー」地域外にいる人にとっては「デリー」と呼ばれているんだとか。このあたり、日本人にとってはなかなか理解しがたい、繊細な問題です。

 

と、それはさておき。デリー到着時はすでに夜8時。当然のことながら、外は真っ暗に。とにもかくにも、まずは宿を確保しないと!というわけで、私のガイドブックをメインに、宿探し開始。日本のガイドブックに出ている宿だから、ハズレっていうのもそんなにないでしょ、と思い、片っ端からあたってみることに。…と言っても、北アイルランドの小さな街、日本のガイドブックで紹介される内容も限度があるわけで。

 

全然、情報量少ないから!

 

シーズンオフってこともあり、安そうな宿は、行ってみるものの閉まっていたりして全然泊まれる気配なし。やむを得ず、高いのを覚悟して、その街一番と思われるホテルを訪れたホテルも、「今夜は満室です」と断られる始末。もう、どうしよー。。車で寝るしかない?!そんな考えが頭をよぎりつつ、街をさまよう私たち。1

と困っていたところ、パブの外でタバコを吸ってた小太りな酔っ払いが「何してるの?」と声をかけてきた。「ホテル探してるんだよぅー!見つからなくて困ってるの。」と答えたものの、彼は理解できていない様子。どうやら、彼は英語がしゃべれないらしく、ジェスチャーと単語で必死に何かを訴えている。「me, walk, see, beautiful!」 え? あっちの方歩いたら景色がキレイだよってこと? 「I, buy, beer,drink!」 何?一緒飲もうってこと? おごってくれるって?いやいや、だから今はホテル探ししてるんだってば。。

 

なにやら彼は必死に訴え続けていたけれど、そのうちあきらめて退散していったふうー…と?あれ?

 

戻ってきた。。

 

しかも、友達も一緒。 どうやら、英語を話せる友達を通訳として連れてきたらしい。しかし、それでも彼の英単語コミュニケーションは続く。

 

酔っ払い:「I…」

友達:「fat」

 

ぶっ。。

 

酔っ払い:「I…」

友達:「small」

 

ぶぶっ。。おもしろい。。

 

そんな酔っ払いはさておき、その友達と会話を始めた私たち。ありがたいことにホテル情報をゲットし、なんとか街外れにあるホテルにたどり着くことができました。

 

その後、部屋で飲もうとお酒を買いに出かけるも、ウォッカを割るためのオレンジジュースがなかなか見つからず、再び街をさまよったのも、今やいい思い出です(笑)。
