The Western world is in mourning for the loss of the American tourist.
After years of the tourism industry’s collapse, the American public is finally seeing the damage it has wrought on their country.
“America is in a period of mourning for a long time,” said Jeff Baca, director of the University of Montana Tourism Center.
The country is deeply saddened by the loss, Baca told the Associated Press.
America is deeply sad and mourning,” he said.
Tens of thousands of Americans died in the American West from natural causes in the 1900s, and the deaths of more than 20,000 people in the 20th century.
After the Second World War, most Westerners moved to Europe and Asia.
In the decades after World War II, many of the Westerners who remained stayed behind.
But that changed in the 1960s, with the arrival of the Cold War, and with the end of the era of the white man’s burden.
Since then, a large number of Americans have come to the West.
This is the first time that a tourism industry has been left in a state of financial ruin, Botaasaid. “
There are still a lot of people out there that are doing the same thing,” he added.

Americans were willing to travel to Europe for the same reasons they were willing, at least for a short period, to travel for the sake of vacation, Banca said.
It was a logical conclusion, he added, that many of those travelers did not want to return to the United States.
Tourism has been in decline for years, Bandaasaid, the author of the book The Lonely West, wrote in an email.
A recent study showed that the number of U.S. visitors to Europe has been on a decline since 2000, according to a survey by the Tourism Industry Association.
Banca said there were many reasons for the downturn, but one was the rise of the “traveler as enemy.”
“The traveler as enemy,” Banca wrote.
“People have become so used to seeing themselves as victims and having to prove their worthiness of their place in society, that it is easier to think that everyone else is just going to do the same.”
Botaas said the tourism community needs to reevaluate the entire concept of travel.
Many of the tourists who traveled to Europe in the last two decades have become disillusioned with it, he said, citing the recent deaths in the U.K. and France of British tourists.
That has made it difficult for tourism companies to keep up with demand.
The industry’s revenue in the United Kingdom has dropped from $11.4 billion in 2016 to $8.6 billion in 2018, according the British National Travel and Tourism Council.
Despite the downturn in tourism, the tourism economy in the West remains strong.
There were more than 6 million people in hotels and motels in the Western United States in 2020, according a study by the Pew Research Center.
