My friend gave me a new word today: Touron. It is a combination of "tourist" and "moron". (Unfortunately, today, I am playing a tourist!) The definition of this new word is something like this: when someone, of even above average intelligence, enters the world of being a tourist and ceases to possess common sense, reason, and self-reliance, as evidenced by stupid, obvious questions, impulsive buying, and not being able to read signs to even find out where the bathroom is. How I pray I wasn't a "Touron" today in Lijiang, China!
