No matter where you go...


somebody wants to sell you a souvenir (and a Coke).

After walking just about all the way up Mt. Vesuvius, you're greeted by a handwritten sign -- in four languages, no less -- announcing that you're almost to the top, to the smoking caldera.

Interestingly enough, the word "souvenir" needs no translation.

The Smokinbg Caldera sounds like a punk band...or maybe C&W.

On the flanks of Everest, there is so much human excrement (along with the empty oxygen canisters and frozen bodies) that it resembles a huge...well, dump.

And not a Golden Arch in sight...
(Not yet, anyway.)
