It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.


With all of these tourists coming in on mega cruise ships, someone has to go out and get the prawns for their cocktails...

They are an interesting mix, cruise ship tourists. If it's piled with Americans, you've never seen so many gold lamé tracksuits coupled with pearls in your life! If it's Russians, break out the t-shirts with elaborate prints of exotic animals on it. If it's northern Europeans - and I'm looking at you Germany - expect to see a lot of middle aged couples in matching hiking gear.

Brilliant descriptions...

Next time they float into port, please run down and take some colour photos as they come down the gangway.

Oh, do I love your tourist descriptions!!! Too true!

I really like the sense of scale you've achieved in this photo! Nice!!

Nanc, customs keep me well clear of that scene!

Kris said...

UH, a clean magazine, I hope!

Chuck, they do often seem to conform to type, don't they. I shudder at descriptions of Australians as drunken loudmouths...
