Tourists in Rome

I was reviewing some photos I took in Italy in September, when I caught sight of this woman. It was a complete accident she was even in the photo -- I was taking a picture of the Arch of Titus with about a bazillion tourists underneath it. But today she just caught my eye, in her red pants and crazy shirt, against a backdrop of tourists dressed in blue, tan and grey.

Why are we tourists so boring sometimes? I would like to see comfortable travel clothing in a wide variety of colours. Really, sometimes I think that the hippies had it right.
