Too much tourism ?
« on: August 05, 2018, 10:26:52 AM »

Venice certainly. Ibiza ? Majorca ? Prague ? Paris ?

Chatting to a Dutch Guy the other day - he wants to build a wall around Amsterdam and float it out of Holland - I see why :-

''Last week the city’s ombudsman, Arre Zuurmond, condemned the municipal authorities’ failure to manage the growing crowds, saying the centre had become a lawless “urban jungle” with police spread too thin to keep control. “Messy, dirty, puking, shitting on the street,” says Suzanne Bleijenberg, 27, an office worker, of the night visitors.''

At the end of this piece, there's some photos of an overcrowded Barcelona so you can see why the locals have a problem with too many tourists :-

''Sick posters urging tourists to jump their deaths from balconies have popped across Barcelona. The posters, which claim that ‘balconing IS fun’, and ‘prevents gentrification’, have been spotted around the famous Spanish city.''
