Makeover Monday – Over/Undertourism

This week's #MakeoverMonday¬†challenge looks into countries where tourists greatly outnumber locals, or vise versa. Original:¬† I like the original, but I think the transition between Mexico, Italy, and Spain from more locals to more tourists is hard to understand at a glance.
