Interesting....does he have knowledge about Tourism Industry?

Don't know, but he is smart enough to know about a lot of things. Tourism came up in our convo - I told him about how Italy had been the number one destination for US tourist but the locals cheated them so mercilessly that it lost that. He listened intently to that example.

You know this is a normal way of Tourism these days.... You mention Italy...may be you know TripAdvisor scandal a few years ago about their incharge or lead falsifying thousands of reviews and accepting under the table income..... ripping tourists is in the DNA of the travel industry....I lived in Mykonos Greece and worked in Tourism industry there..... Right now as I write there is jaw dropping reading charging of restaurant billings on TripAdvisor..... from the 90s when the restaurants used to give a larger portion so the travellers would return to the same place through out their holidays, they now give less to the same customer and more to the local!!!....I have seen this so many times that I can remember and because I speak the language I have shamed them countless times and they actually realized.... giving and offering generously returned in multifold especially at the beach guest relations I did.... every Third bottle of whatever was with compliments.... the guests returned and stayed their entire holidays and spending thousands of Euros......same philosophy in Samui where we had a small restaurant which people made their second home for their entire stay.... enjoying the garden during the day, children playing around when it was closed as we opened in the evenings... sorry I digressed.... but enjoyed writing this!🤗🤗

I imagine he gets braced by people frequently with their petty gripes and dismisses them accordingly.

I was trying to make a helpful point for him as Hi So locals tend not to be gauged like tourists and therefore don't understand how bad the problem can be (many local tourist businesses are intelligently run in this respect).

 

My mistake for taking you off long term ignore after reading just a few of your posts and the tone of your replies previously. I won't make that mistake again. BYE.
