Italian Reflections (Cont.): The Platypus Travels Part XIV




I don't like being a tourist.  Tourists gawk and point and talk too loud.  Tourists rush everywhere with their cameras snapping pictures of things they don't really understand because they haven't taken the time to see.  Understanding, appreciating, requires taking time to see.  I saw many things in Italy, but I only had time to see a select few.  We only had an hour at the Trevi Fountain, but that was enough time to begin to see.
