Ok everybody! Let's play "Spot the Tourist!"
When you are on vacation in a foreign location, you should enjoy yourself. You should visit places you want to see, eat the local food.... but should you try to fit in with the norms of the country? When I visited Morocco and India last year, I did a *little* research and didn't walk around in low cut, short sleeve shirts. When I visited the Vatican I wore a skirt. Now my questions are...
Did anyone tell this guy that no one wears shorts in Paris, especially in March, and certainly not with a bright blue sweatshirt (no one ever wears sweat clothes)? What do you think? Dress as the locals dress or do your own thing?

I bet he's the same kind of guy that doesn't speak French so he speaks English VERY LOUDLY. Sheesh.

My brothers and I always play spot the tourist everytime we travel-- I've become quite good at guessing the country of origin!!!
