Reflections on tourism: “As I see the world, there's one element that's even more corrosive than missionaries: tourists. It's not that I feel above them in any way, but that the very places they patronize are destroyed by their affection.” 
― Tahir Shah, author of House of the Tiger King: The Quest for a Lost City
   Sadly, how true this observation is.
