_________________________________________ / No place will satisfy a tourist. If it \ | isn't too boring or too dangerous, it | | will instead be inauthentic: too full | | of other tourists.

What a tourist actually wants | | is a more beautiful world than exists, | | which is what we all want in some form | \ or another. / ----------------------------------------- \ ^__^ \ (oo)\_______ (__)\ )\/\ ||----w | || ||
