Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Tourist"

The meaning of "Tourist" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Forget being a tourist, I'm a ghost. mean?
A: The meaning is "I'm not a tourist, I'm a ghost." You can use "forget ~" in order to negate something only if you mentioned it previously. So since he previously mentioned that he was a tourist, now it is contextually proper to tell the reader or himself to "forget" it. If you expand this, the general idea is something like "forget what I mentioned previously, it was wrong."

I can't tell from the context who this is directed to. It could it be a part of the monologue directed toward the reader, or it could be a representation of internal thought. Either, or even both. In reality, it doesn't matter for understanding -- the picture you get is the same either way. I suppose it matters only if you are translating literally to another language, but based on what I wrote above, I don't think a literal translation is necessarily proper. There should be an equivalent expression in other languages that does not necessarily involve "forgetting".
