I am surprised that you have not seen the Mona Lisa nor the Leaning Tower nor been to the top of the Eiffel Tower. I haven't done any of those things either. Maybe we should skip out on our jobs and flee to Europe to take care of that :-)

My verification word is "nommists" -- I think those are the kitties on lolcats. Nom nom nom...

Am interested in the concentration camp diatribe. Please place on to do list since it appears you have too much free time. ; )
Interesting to note there's more you wish NOT to do than wish to do...
and I'm with you on the Holocaust Museum--was right outside it and could not bring myself to go inside.

I too didn't go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. I wanted to SEE the Eiffel Tower, so we did manage to climb the steps of the Arc de Triumph. The view of the city is lovely from there. God, I love Paris.
