In response to this whole SWINE FLU FEVER, Trip Advisor editors decided to list their Top 5 Most Germy Places In The World, which includes Blarney Stone in Blarney, Ireland, Seattle's Gum Wall, Oscar Wilde's Tomb in Paris, St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy and Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA.
Really, Trip Advisory? I think you missed a few spots:
Navy Pier's Funhouse Maze in Chicago, Illinois - just because I've been there and it's gross. Black lights and sticky children allowed to run amuck don't mix well.
The Ganges River in India - where a 4 mile stretch of bathing ghats in the holy city of Varanasi contains 120 times the official limit of fecal matter considered safe for bathing (thank you, Wikipedia).
Russian and Turkish Baths in the East Village, New York - give Africa a break, AIDS totally started here.
but speaking of Africa, how about...
Wet 'n Wild Ebola Virus Water Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo- with the $4 bottles of water its kind of a tourist trap.
Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey - the only campus bookstore where HPV is airborne.
China, in particular, all of it.
and last, but certainly not least (drum roll please)...
Am I missing any other places? You bet, but I have enough ideas up my sleeve to turn this entry into a daily calendar- or better yet a witty parody book that might sell one copy at Urban Outfitters.
