Are There Bathrooms?

The Daily Telegraph reports on a poll in which over 1,000 British tourists were asked to name the ten most disappointing tourist attractions. Guess which one came out on top, described as being "frustratingly overcrowded and overpriced?"

While you're pondering that, here's the rest of the list:

2) The Louvre (Mona Lisa)
3) Times Square
4) Las Ramblas, Spain
5) Statue of Liberty
6) Spanish Steps, Rome
7) The White House
8) The Pyramids, Egypt
9) The Brandenburg Gate, Germany
10) The Leaning Tower of Pisa

One wonders what the Brits were hoping to find in Times Square, but didn't.
