O...M...G. See, this is why I don't travel:
The famous photo, over which Mike never-been-ogled Krumboltz gushes, "perfectly catches the fun and romance of being abroad," shows a young woman, eyes downcast, being drooled over with scary intensity by over a dozen strange men; had she been alone rather than hangin' with a photog, the next dance-step is one of 'em brushes against her, catches her up and if she draws away, he takes offense, backed up by his peers. At that point, there'd better be a cop or a busy street right around the corner, because it's already too late to get away alone.
Or maybe I'm just a sour old maid. Nevertheless, that image pretty well captures why I started carrying a gun -- and one reason why I despise travel.
