    Playing tourist isn't something I particularly care to do and while each big city offers what it offers, personally I enjoy it more when we fit in and can interact/talk with other people. What does Paris really offer that a person has to go there to see that is so superior?

    If it were a situation that we couldn't travel without it being free, that would be a different matter. But our limitations on traveling are not economic, the limitation is time. So it's not about the $$. Paris is not on our future list of places we want to travel to.
    So in between your wife finding cures for cancer and carrying surrogate children that threaten her life, you guys prance around the globe on a whim?

    Hey, Joko, not to be a dick, but most of your stories that you post here come off as exactly that and are hilarious to read from a grown man

    The Louvre is great, if you're into art museums.

    The throngs of tourists are only at the entrance and in a couple spots- like the Mona Lisa. The rest of the place is pretty empty because it's so flipping immense.

    Another key is to not go in the summer.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Baltimore is a huge ****hole, no doubt, but I think the video is meant to imply a sectariaon or nationalist element to the attack in Paris. And unfortunately these type of tensions with the arab and islamic community in Paris is nothing new.

    That's what a lot of people like to do on vacation. My wife, for example, will sit on a beach for days on end.

    That's why I travel with other people....

    What is your fixation with race? You seem to constantly cite "whiteness" as if it's some disease and that it's the root of all evil in western society. You did the samething while hilariously maligning a remake spike lee did

    The irony is regardless of where you travel there are "safe" and established tourist routs catering to people just looking for the "cruise" type getaway. Regardless if that route is populated by middle class locals, Indian or Chinese nationals, or the Japanese. Race really has nothing to do with people being uncultured, lazy and stupid. And sometimes people just want to relax

    That common wisdom did not unfortunately help me in the last place I visited.

    Well, you can always blow off the roofing job...head down to Club 21. Is that still open? As I recall good burger, music, etc.
