My favorite country is Russia - definitely. Favorite cities would be Moscow and New York City - nothing like those two places!

I do not like Wyoming. Where men are lonely and sheep are scared...  Big thumbs up

I've only been to 2 countries my whole life, and they are both great. The best cities I've been to are Portland, OR, Vancouver, BC, Kansas City, MO. The worst city I've ever been to is Spokane Washington. What other Americans tell me about Paris, Spokane is about the same. Dirty, smelly, rude people and bad drivers. AN-225: If you are just driving through Wyoming, it's a beautiful state. But yes, the living there is scary for some  Big grin

LOT767300ER: You obviously haven't put a foot in some of africa's country. I went to Tunisia 5 times and this place is beautiful, especially D'jerba island. Also go to the shores in Mauritania where crystal blue seas full of dolphins and white sand will wait for you. When you'll go there you'll fall in love with it!

Oh and Monaco is not a country but a principality.

My favorite countries:

Canada
Australia
Switzerland
Belgium
USA (esp. the west and east coast and Alaska too)
Tunisia

The best country I have been to so far was the UK! London is a great city, best transportation. I would go back any time.

Paris was OK but the Pigalle area is a red light district!

Favourite cities:

1. Bangkok, Thailand (nowhere on earth has more to do, see, eat, drink, buy, win, lose. Also, has the best food on the planet, just ahead of Singapore)

2. Shanghai, China (hold on to your hats, China is coming and Shanghai is the place to be)

3. London, England (hideously expensive but by far the greatest European city)

4. Paris, France (c'est belle, Paris!)

5. Lhasa, Tibet (raw, savage beauty. Lovely people, but don't drink the tea with Yak butter!)

6. Dubai, UAE (so modern, clean, great shopping)

7. Tehran, Iran (surrounded by beautiful mountains. Great people too)

Worst Cities:

1. Calcutta, India (you could nuke it and nobody would notice the difference.....)

2. Luanda, Angola (kids with guns, loads of amputees)

3. Los Angeles, USA (ugly, false, dirty)

4. Phnomh Penh, Cambodia (depraved child-brothels and gangsters everywhere, police are too corrupt to care)

5. Jakarta, Indonesia (dirty, run-down, not a lot to do)

6. Brussels, Belgium (forgive me if I fall asleep just thinking about this place, it's sooooooo boring!)

7. Karachi, Pakistan (very unfriendly-total contrast with the friendly Indian people. Why is it that Arabs are really friendly, showing true Muslim hospitality to their guests whereas the Pakistanis all seem to have a huge chip on their shoulder?)
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
