Tourism is very popular now, that’s why all the tourists are practically the same. When they arrive in a city or in a town they choose a hotel to stay in, call their relatives and friends to say that everything is OK. Every day they like sportsmen walk great distances. They try to see as much as possible. So in the evening they are very tired. Sometimes brave and strong tourists are healthy enough to go to theater in the evening and to taste and enjoy exotic traditional meals in the cafes. Some of them go on a boat, some prefer comfortable buses. But every tourist sends lots of text messages and postcards to share his happiness with others.
