How to not see Paris

By touring the city on a Segway. This is the most ridiculous way to discover the City of Lights. Paris is a place you walk, this is the best and most secure way to fill your eyes with everything the city can offer. And if you're tired, get on a tourist bus or a boat. But "doing" Paris on a Segway is the best way to miss it, ask for trouble (Parisians pedestrians are an aggressive and not endangered species) and at best look like a parading nerd who doesn't know how to waste money.

What do you expect? You yourself, I believe, have complained about how Americans think there is a faster, easier way to do everything. The company doing those tours brags that it is American owned and operated. Case closed.
