As he often did in Travels, Battuta wrote about the mood of a cranky Western tourist traveling in package, who only associated with his compatriots, ate strange things, stayed in low-quality motels, and whenever were also deceived by the locals: I am deeply troubled by the thought of how the pagans rule this country.

It bothers me a lot, so I stay in my room most of the time and only go out when I need to.
