I'd like to know if there are people here that have visited a very exotic country where you do not get to go everyday (i.e. say Saudi Arabia, Mali, Libya, Algeria, Laos....all those and many more).
Also, if you have any stories about interesting situations in that country, e.g. if you were in Iran in 1979 or in Lebanon in 1975 I'd be interested in hearing how your experience was as I can't imagine being in a war zone or revolution.
By the way, to start with, my most exotic place was probably Paraguay
It was unbelievable how much stuff they smuggle from there to Brazil everyday... Plus, the place was dirty as hell, just like a dump. You could wander through the streets of Ciudad del Este (if you were able to make way through the garbage) and buy anything you wanted from an illegal copy of any CD
(there were no legal ones, lol) to a surface-to-air missile and bring it back home. It was just crazy...
