Give me your tired, your exhausted tourists
yearning to take a breather at my feet!

  5. Those words should be immortalized on a plaque:) I'm sure von Schiller wouldn't mind!

  8. It's good to have some steps to rest upon while playing tourist, but too bad about the graffiti! I think Herr Schiller would not approve.
