Street art, hammocks, anything made out of bamboo. As Clive Martin found on a recent trip to Mexico, influencing is no longer just for the pros. It's now the standard model for travellers.

Leatherings on the hard shoulder. Brawls on petrol station forecourts. From where Clive Martin is sitting, Britain is

This golden era is no fluke. It may just well be the future.
