Staying with the Tour Insults My Intelligence


Ahhhh…. peace and quiet amid the tourist chaos.

Ladies and Gentlemen, today I present unto you a wall.  Actually two of them… with windows and doors and fun stuff like that.   This abandoned side street will reward your refusal to follow the crowds when traveling in a small Italian town.  The tour guide does not know everything and often steers you towards the “sights” whose overseers funnel his company a little financial recompense.

For that reason, you get a 2-for-1 post today.  Since memorable stuff like this exists, established tourist attractions also insult my intelligence.

Actually, so do tour guides… so that’s 3-for-1.
