First off, thank you Orion' for an amazing post... it was humbling, moving, illuminating and magical!
Second, it's a shame reflexive replies by Western/American hating elitist "knee-jerks" diminish beautiful posts like this. Decrying tourism, oh
I'm sorry, specifically Western or American tourism, is like decrying the automobile... it's improved the quality of life of millions of people...
and yes, there are some environmental concerns that need to be remedied. If however, the haters wish to do more than just listen to themselves
pontificate, try taking on the real causes of the destruction of Earth's beauty... the destruction of habitats for agriculture, irresponsible
acquisition of natural resources, and unchecked urban sprawl for starters.
