Στο παρθενικό μου ταξίδι στην Κωνσταντινούπολη (απ' όπου και η φωτογραφία στ' αριστερά) με κρουαζιερόπλοιο, μέσα στο πλοίο μοιραζόταν ένα χαρτί για τους αγγλόγλωσσους τουρίστες το οποίο ήταν η "προσευχή του τουρίστα". Επειδή το γέλιο πρέπει και να το μοιράζεται κανείς σας την παραθέτω (σημείωση: στο google βρήκα αρκετές παρόμοιες αλλά όχι τη συγκεκριμένη με τέτοια έκταση και βάθος ...θρησκειολογικής ανάλυσης!)


THE TOURIST PRAYER
Heavenly Father, look down on us your humble, obedient tourist servants, who are doomed to travel this earth,taking photographs, mailing postcards, buying souvenirs and walking around in drip-dry underwear.

We beseech you, Lord, to see that our luggage is not lost and our overweight baggage goes unnoticed at the check-in.

Give us this day divine guidance in the selection of our hotels, that we may find our reservations honored, our rooms made up and hot water running from the faucets.

Lead us, dear Lord, to good, inexpensive restaurants, where the food is superb, the waiter friendly, and the wine included in the price of the meal.

Give us wisdom to tip correctly in currencies that we do not understand. Forgive us for under-tipping out of ignorance and over-tipping out of fear. Make the ntives love us for who we are and not for what we can contribute to their worldly goods.

Grant us the strngth to visit the museums, the cathedrals, palaces and castles listed as "musts" in the guidebooks. And if, perchance, we skip an historic monument to take a nap after lunch, have mercy on us for our flesh is weak.

(This part is for the husbands)
Dear god, keep our wives from shopping and protect them from "bargains" they don't need or can't afford. Lead them not into temptation, for they know not what they do.

(This part is for the wives)
Almighty Father, keep our husbands from looking at the foreign women and comparing them to us. Save them from making fools of themselves in cafes and nightclubs. Above all, do not forgive them their trespasses, for they know exactly what they do.

(For everybody)
And when our voyage is over and we return to our loved ones, grant us the favour of finding someone who'll look at our home movies and listen to our stories, so our lives as tourists will not have been in vain.

KALO TAKSIDI!!!!!!
