    Oklahoma City, Oklahoma was pretty depressing for me.

    1981. Russia hadn’t fallen yet. The place was all so dreary and everything was gray. The food was bland. The people all looked like they were suffering from a chronic case of depression and alcoholism. Not to mention they took my passport and wouldn’t let me out of the country in the middle of the night! Interogating me for hours with BS questions.

    November 2002 in Mon Cai, Vietnam near the China border.
    I’m sorry Michelle, I don’t mean to say that Vienam isn’t nice for me, the country scenes are beautiful, but my bad souvenir in MOn Cai was that I afraid to death when the Vietnamese hotel clerk telling me that they lost my passport. I got to wait for a few days to get my passport back.
    Since, I’m afraid to go back to Vietnam again, sorry to say that:)

    ^ I like Nashville!! There’s plenty to do there. Ever heard of honky tonk’in?

    I’d have to say Watertown, South Dakota. Small town life, blah.

    The most beautiful place I have ever been to was no other than my beloved Angkor Wat of Cambodia. The worst place I have been to was Basilan Island, Philippine. Smell of bake fishes in the morning with coconut oil, arose with tropical humidity, and smell of feces coming from nearby toilet. And worry about my head being cut off by those bandits.

    Lost 10 minute in back alley of Bangkok shanty makeshift shack. The balmy stench of stagnant open sewage boil under hot sun was thick enough to choke you instantaneously. I ask the driver to return me to the hotel across the airport.

    Thank you Bong Komlost for your advice. I hope you don’t mean to say this to Michelle, because Michelle is very nice to us.

    What is a typical Yugoslavian entree??

    I envision Russia as a little bit depressing….but not as dreary as you described. How long were you interrogated for?

    Don’t you know that when you stay at the hotel during your visit in Vietnam your passport will be removed automaticly by the hotel manager? That’s the Viet gov’t rule for all tourists who stay at the hotel during their stay in Vietnam.

    Besides, food in N.Vietnam has no taste, I mean it’s not spicy, it tastes like the Monk’s food.
    No wonder most of the Vietnameses are so skinny.:)

    Stay with relatives in L.A. for a week in an unfamiliar area. I likened it to a war zone.

    Lost in Queens late at night driving around with a friend. Pulled up to a stop at a traffic light. Black dude came up to my little Fiero. Made me very nervous. Motioned to me to roll down the window; I did. He asked for for change. I was thinking of telling him if you want change, get your ass out of this ghetto neighborhood and get an education. Found some coins in my change holder and gave it to him. Looked up and saw green light. I couldn’t get out of there soon enough.

    I met a couple who visited Romania. They said it was the most despairing place they had ever travelled to, even compared to third world countries in Africa and Asia. Public restrooms were infested with druggies whose bodies were ravaged by disease…hunger was everywhere they turned… they showed me pictures, and I would definitely agree with them.

    The hotels we stayed are nice. A big surprise is that the Vietnamese people are very intergrated by the the western culture. Every restaurant and bar, there is always piano playing and candlelight ambiance looks like in the western country. It’s hard to believe a communist country like Vietnam, you can find such ambiance in hotels and restaurants.:)
