Dear sir and madam,

Welcome to our city. I could make a remark about thumbs that are sore, but that probably wouldn’t be polite. Please enjoy your stay.

theyre germans. that is the standard german tourist kit. its issued at frankfurt airport as they fly out to the rest of the world.

i’d dispute the ‘German Tourist’ tag, they would definetly need socks on those sandels if they where, perhaps italian ?

I believe that Franz is wearing socks and what seem to be sandals. The woman is probably his Italian wife.

they are obviously country aussies – no one else would think of dressing like that! and they don’t go to the big city too often!!!

They look better than I do when I go
on a Photo Field Trip.
YUP! He’s wearing a photo vest. (Not that he has ANY Photo equipment in the pockets, but that’s beside the point!
If he’s a Diabetic he SHOULD be wearing socks. (Not that I would do such a thing!)
REMEMBER it’s winter up here. We can’t remember what is in good taste cause it’s been 6 months since we have had hot weather!
BTW – I wish our tourists looked as
good as that. Some of them are still wearing the bermuda shorts and hawaiian shirts!

Oh, well.
