Dresden, Germany: U.S. Tourist Beaten For Nazi Salute

A nitwit traveler with obviously too much booze befuddling his brain, recently walked around the ancient city’s streets shouting and doing the Heil Hitler arm gesture. He was attacked by angry Germans because they didn’t want to be reminded of the bad old days. He’s now facing legal problems.

Just a couple of weeks previously, two clueless tourists from China were jailed for doing the same in Berlin. In addition to angering the natives, it’s also against the law to do the hated salute anywhere in that nation.

There’s a lesson to be learned here for senior wanderers. When visiting foreign countries, always obey the local laws and other restrictions. If ignored or you insist on showing off your stupidity, it could get you in trouble. Watch your language, alcoholic drinks, dress codes, sanitary regulations, curfews and other behavior constraints.

Be sure to keep kids near at all times, and for little ones age four and under, hold firmly by the hand.

USA Today and the New York Times reported that the passengers who survived that belly-flop Flight 1549 US Air landing in the Hudson River in January will finally get their luggage delivered to them.

Nearly five months later, but considering what could have happened to them, the passengers are just happy to have their clothing and other personal items back again. Additionally, they’re getting a lot more than just some soggy socks, drenched dresses and water-logged luggage. US Air and its insurance company, to get off the hook from possible legal actions, have offered each passenger $10,000.

Disney to build hotel-resort near Washington, D.C. PDF Print E-mail

According to USA Today and the Washington Post, Disney will put up a 500-room hotel resort near Washington D.C. within the next year or two. About 15 years ago, Disney attempted to get permission to build a big theme park in nearby Virginia. However, because it could possibly disturb some Civil War battlefields, the request was turned down.

A Disney official said the new hotel will be "a family-friendly base camp, from which visitors from around the world can explore the stirring sights and inspirational stories of our nation's capital." Although the new Disney venture won’t have any of the familiar Disney features, we have suggestions for Washington- and government-themed attractions to draw in those world travelers.
