I'm going to follow it up with a tough one, just to get it out of the way.

Syria.

Tony,

No country is too tough for Al. If he hasn’t been to Aleppo, he’s probably already booked a flight.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Default Onward!

Per the rules, I can now follow myself up. Might as well travel just a little way and cross off another tough one.

Lebanon.

Lived there in 1979/1980 until evacuated at the start of the civil war. My memories of it are actually quite nice, but when you're 7/8 you don't think of politics and religion, only other kids and fun things to do.

I remember spotty memories: The toy store that had GI Joe figures and the British equivalent of Matchbox cars (they were olive green military vehicles), the smell of orange in the air by the Mediterranean on AUB's campus. The Banyan trees. And the fact they have almost as many different words/types of yogurt as Eskimos have words for snow. I also remember Rin Tin Tin and Asterix the Gaul for some reason.

Anyway, Lebanon.

Tony

I'm just going to keep filling in what holes I can. Since its' seven days later I will add another tough one.

El Salvador.

I did not get thrown in jail in El Salvador, unlike Honduras, so my short time there did have that going for it. We did pay some guy with an automatic weapon money to let us park our van and sleep outside his gas station in San Salvador, though.

I'm being dogged here, and since its' been seven days I will bring it back to good old Europe and add:

Switzerland.

One of my favorite memories was watching a Japanese tourist fall into the water on the infamous "Bridge of Selfies" in Lucerne.

Certainly someone can work with that?

Al, you might want to review your itinerary and flights. It looks like you are spending 27 nights in just 24 days.

I guess that’s why Africa is the “dark” continent.

Leave 8-6 and return 9-6. Ironically, since we are flying Emirates, the first night we end up in Dubai for the 4th time. We used to have a development office there in my working days. I always though it would be fun to open up a Card Souk next to the Gold Souk there .
