One thing we've learned absolutely throughout the year is that NO two
people travel alike. Some of you love to take environmentally sensitive,
ecotourist-type vacations...while others, like Mary-Lou Weissman, aren't
quite so comfortable with the great outdoors.

"Our hotel billed itself as a model of sustainable eco-tourism: a demonstration of how to save the rainforest by luring nature lovers to pay to see it.
Ah, but could we qualify as eco-tourists? My husband Larry and I can't identify anything beyond the generic: tree, rock, vine, bug...
and we have never counted birds. We are very good, however, at recycling anything with a 1 or 2 on the bottom."
