Funny Onion "travel" article (Not about africa but funny point)

Hey all:

My husband pulled this up from the Onion (a fake newspaper for those who might not know). It's from 2003 so maybe it has already circulated on these boards:


I thought it was a funny commentary on what we think we're doing when we travel. (Plus, I am sure you've met people like this). I fully realize the tourist mentality applies to me (a person who avoids the resort-style vacation) just as much as it applies to the people who love all-inclusives. That is, you can go anywhere and miss out on what a country is "really" like. After all, we're just tourists!

Hope it made you giggle.
