One of the downsides to travel is that there are some places with restricted access, you are only allowed in with a tour group. Such was the case at Hearst Castle in California. Tours don't necessarily suck, it is the people on the tour. Every once in a while we get stuck with what seems like the worst group in the world. Case in point, our fellow tourists at Hearst Castle.

(Looking at a typical dinner table setting, fine china, crystal stemware, silverware): is that ketchup real?
