A Tourist's Tale [Jan. 8th, 2005|10:00 am]
Tony Grist
A chap I know spent the Christmas holidays in Bangkok. People round him (bar and hotel staff?) were joking about this tsunami thing that had hit the coast. "You should go to Phuket; they're handing out free food." He gathered there'd been some minor local unpleasantness.

It was only when he arrived back home that he discovered he'd been living in the middle of a disaster area...

...and that he'd have learned more about Thailand if he'd have stayed at home and watched TV.

No, I think you're right.

The relationship between tourists and natives(especially in a third world country) involves a lack of respect on both sides.

I can vouch for that, absolutely.
