Always something happening

in the city by the bay.
The latest problem ... cheap tourists, offhandedly implied as Asians.
I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue if they spent lunch money during the stop
instead of eating ramen brought from home.

Gawking tourists not welcome in the Castro
Gawking tourists not welcome in the Castro

C.W. Nevius

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Residents of the Castro are watching with growing concern as their neighborhood becomes a regular attraction on the sightseeing tour of the city.

In the last three months, large tour buses have begun to park in the area on Thursday and Sunday afternoons, opening their doors and sending hundreds of tourists out to gawk and snap photos of the exotic sight of two men holding hands.
Michael Woo, manager of the tour department of America Asia Express sightseeing tours...

"They come in here, 15 or 20 at a time," said Sam Dughman, owner of Rossi's Deli for 31 years. "They look around, take a picture, and then they walk out. In the last three months I've sold one bottle of water. It is not worth having so much traffic. We're not a photo album."

His people do the same thing, except they're not as fun to write about, I suppose.
