World counts, has to clear innumerable selfie stick owners out of the way, then in

In front of St. Peter’s Basilica, a few kilometers further, there is a different picture
the same phenomenon: here the tourists are in a neat
Eucharistic queue, which is almost once around the huge forecourt
winds. The waiting time is several hours.
You feel like a fool. Why drive away?
You can also queue in the Citizens’ Office. You couldn’t do it 20 years ago
sit on the edge of this stupid fountain? Back then you couldn’t just do it
slap into the St. Peter’s Basilica?

busy keeping vacationers away. And also in cities like Amsterdam, London,
Rome, Paris or Berlin creaks the urban and social infrastructure. In
