You're forced to pick one. Where ... and why?

Personally, I'd take Jo'Burg. ZA is a beautiful country, and I've always wanted to see it. If I don't het hijacked in Gauteng, I could take the N1 through to Cape Town.

I picked Cuba because it has direct flights to Canada, is within boating distance from Florida and I know the language. I figure my chances of getting around are improved based on the language alone. Plus there is American military closeby and some diplomats still around.

Have a cigar!

I'd go to Cuba. Besides the great cigars, I've always wanted to see a revolution in the twilight of its years. ;)

The road to and from San Vicente, Colombia. This area is also known as farclandia. If you find yourself on this road you will be stopped at one of the many farc checkpoints and they will check your bank account with their laptop and you will pay.

Cuba!

Not only does it have great cigars but it’s so close and a preservationist’s dreamland. I'd love to see it before we reestablish ties and introduce urban renewal and unbridled growth to the island.

The UW-Milwaukee is offering a program going to Cuba next January. I am seriously thinking of signing up for it.

Ya gotta pick Cuba! With the universal health care, and socialist government, it's just like Canada - only without the snow!

I would go to Cuba, escape at nightfall in a raft, then get signed for millions by the New York Yankees! Viva Cuba!

yeah, def. Cuba. I'd like to see it before it gets back to its old ways. when Habana is once again South Florida's red-light district and the tobacco plantations are replaced by hotel plantations.

we'll see how long it takes for them to turn it into another Haiti or Jamaica.

The cubans helped us back in the 70s (although with Allende) and they helped with smuggling guns... but what the heck.. I wasn't alive back then!
