Some of Claude's travel photos are fine: some are fairly typical tourist shots, and some give us a pang of nostalgia, like Claude wearing his hopeful Obama campaign t-shirt in front of the US Capitol building.
Some of Claude's tourist endeavors are downright cringe-worthy. It's not Claude's fault; he picked popular destinations out of guidebooks. Like most tourists, he didn't delve deeply into the historical implications of his vacation destinations. And as amusing as Claude wearing a Mt. Rushmore t-shirt in front of Mt. Rushmore is, Mt. Rushmore itself is not funny at all. And while the Crazy Horse monument does not depict a racist white guy, it still desecrates the very land it was attempting to honor. Whoever's idea that was totally missed the mark.
I am retiring the entire collection of Claude's Travels for now. Claude may travel again in the future, but he will pick his destinations more carefully next time.
Claude likes to travel. Specifically, Claude likes to be a tourist. You may see him in front of a well-known monument, asking if you'll take his picture. Maybe he'll send you a postcard on his next trip. Claude (clawed) was named by Living in the Past, after another traveling cat in her family. Claude is drawn with marker, colored digitally, and poses in front of real (photographs of) popular tourist destinations.
