U.S.S. George Washington.


Walking through the streets last night I saw loads of Americans wandering round. I thought it was a bit strange until I clocked the banner across one of the streets. Apparently there’s a U.S. Navy ship at the military base this week.

Great, this is all I need. Lots of loud, obnoxious Americans on tour. Not to mention drunken sailors. All getting a bad name for tourists, and I even look like one of them!! The tourist police presence in the city simply confirmed my fears.

However, I have to say that all of the people I saw were very well behaved. Keeping to groups of 3 or less, quietly looking around and generally being polite. Forget all your American stereotypes, the crew of the USS George Washington is a credit to the US Navy.

Well done chaps!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
