I don’t hear many Irish accents in Idaho.

The writer claims Ketchum is still more “’Papa’ than Prada”

When I lived in Upstate New York, it wasn’t common on a daily basis, but every week or two I came across a friend or acquaintance who had moved to the States.  In Delaware, there was my neighbor, Pete, a transplant from near Dublin.  Pete was a raconteur who entertained everyone at the local pub until he started talking politics and then he was annoying.  While he wanted to live here, the rest of us were all wrong about how to run a country.

We may be seeing Irish tourists in large numbers coming to Idaho.  The Irish Times is naming the state (specifically Ketchum) among the top tourist destinations on the planet.  The writer claims Ketchum is still more “’Papa’ than Prada” and I think I like it that way.
