I may be a tourist in a foreign country, but coming from a place (Stellenbosch) that sees thousands of them stream in through the "in-season", pillaging and plundering all the natural - and unnatural - resources, just to leave suddenly as the weather makes a turn for the worst, leaving nothing behind but a bad aftertaste of sauerkraut in your mouth and perhaps a stinky pair of socks (which was worn knee-high with sandals of course), there are a number of reasons why I've nurtured a disliking for many of them:
1) They show scant respect for natural wonders.
2) Public indecency is not a problem for them.
3) In fact, most of them have no concept of the term or any skaam whatsoever!
4) And they have bad, bad habits too.
For these reasons and more, I wish to disassociate myself from the stereotypical term of "tourist" and would henceforth like to be referred to as an ex-patriate of South Africa in Vietnam.
