With your trusty Internet-savvy computer, you can now easily reach out and tour the entire world from the comfort and security of a chair in home or office. (It is certainly more fun than working, or doing bills.) But the sad fact is that, in order for virtual tours to become a reality, someone must endure long trans-oceanic trips in cramped seats aboard crowded jets, dining on indifferently heated plastic-wrapped food substitutes, in order to provide the "tour" part of a virtual tour. So, in a heroic effort to bring European history and culture to Washington Apple Pi members, the Washington Apple Pi European Tour 1997 was conceived: an extended three-month sojurn to the Great Cities of the Old World.
But there were budget cutbacks, so you get this, instead.
