Tourist as Cultural Lab Rats

Tourist as Cultural Lab Rats
There was maybe a dozen people who went out partying last night, many arrived back to the Hostel around 5-7 am.

Friday night to Saturday Morning.

It is the Weekend, they must go part they are conditioned to do so...

None of these Tourist Rat subject are working or have any reason to differentiate between a Friday night and a Monday night. This group in a Classical Conditioning manner all decided Friday night was party night.

As a traveler or a tourist the days of week fuse, I place zero priority on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday they are just another day in my life.

However there are few travelers who ever lose they Rat Lab Conditioning.

Koreans wok up in 1988 and have yet to go to sleep.

Hi Andy.

I wonder if it is not a case of preference vs. conditioning. I.e. the partygoers taking into account when the general population would be out partying as well?

From experience I would say that most people that go out drinking (or whatever) tend to want it to be a social event, thus Friday's does lend it towards that purpose, now doesn't it?
