Been there, done that

Now, yours truly has seen the sights here in the city of frogs and in order to make your stay in Paris as pleasant as possible I thought I could give you all a brief review of some of the main attractions here in Paris.

I will rate the attractions on a scale from 1-5 Salarymen where "1" Salaryman is the worst and indicates that you'd be better off not seeing this particular attraction while a "5" would be the best.

The Arc of Triumph
The Good: It's a relatively big building
The Bad: "Triumph" and "French" doesn't do it for me, the view was in theory good, but unfortunately the only thing I could see was Paris...
Rating: 1.5 Salarymen

The Louvre
The Good: It's got some art and stuff
The Bad: It's too big and it was featured in the God-Jesus awful book and movie "The Da Vinci Code"
Rating: 1.5 Salarymen

Notre Dame
The Good: It's a big building
The Bad: It's a sacred place of worship and a pretty boring one at that
Rating: 1 Salaryman
Monte Martre
The Good: It's close to a relatively mild red-light area with pretty funny looking pubs
The Bad: It's up on a hill and got plenty of crappy artists
Rating: 2 Salarymen

The Eiffel Tower
The Good
: (Nothing)
The Bad: Just a cheap rip-off of the Tokyo Tower and shorter to boot.
Rating: 0.5 Salaryman

All in all, I highly recommend visiting Paris if you are staying in a decent hotel and stay in the hotel room most of the day.

maybe you should check out the sex museum. last time i was there, they were showing old silent porno from the early 1900's...

Damn! Missed that one, wax and sex museums cannot go too wrong, even in this God-Jesus forsaken country.
Vintage porno is a very interesting subject, that's for sure!

It is funny to keep name them as the city of frogs...I eat in the restaurant of 3 Star Hotel in Paris and it was very tasty.

The Eiffel Tower is older than Tokyo Tower... How can it be an imitation if it came first? :(

Maybe Tokyo Tower is the new and improved v 2.0 of the Eiffel Tower?
